The FBI has announced charges against two suspected British terrorists accused of being part of a "notoriously brutal" Islamic State cell known as "The Beatles".
Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, both in their 30s and from west London, allegedly belonged to the cell of executioners in Syria - known as "The Beatles" because of their British accents.
John Demers, assistant attorney general for national security, announced the charges during a news conference in the US on Wednesday.
He said: "The defendants are charged with terrorism offences related to hostage-taking and killing of four Americans, as well as citizens of Great Britain and Japan."
