Two British citizens connected to the ISIS Beatles have been arrested in Syria. The pair is now seeking sympathy by complaining they will not get a fair trial because the UK government has revoked their citizenship. Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh both said the murder of IS hostages was "regrettable".
Elsheikh says the "illegal" removal of their citizenship put them at risk of "rendition and torture." Adding, "Being taken to any foreign land and treated in any way and having nobody to vouch for you. When you have these two guys who don't even have any citizenship… if we just disappear one day, where is my mum going to go and say where is my son?"

He also said he could have "no fair trial when I am 'the Beatle' in the media." Maybe this terrorist should have considered the consequences of his actions before joining ISIS. The US says "the Beatles" IS cell beheaded over 27 Western hostages and tortured many more.

The UK defense minister Tobias Ellwood proposes trying the pair in an international criminal court. Families of the victims also want the pair to face a trial. The daughter of David Haines said she hoped they die a "slow, painful death."

Two British aid workers, David Haines and Alan Henning, were among those killed by the cell. Home Secretary Amber Rudd said the two remaining suspects in the "Beatles" are designated terrorists by the US and have used "exceptionally cruel" torture methods.
