El Shafee Elsheikh (l.) and Alexandar Amon Kotey (r.) are two British members of ISIS that were captured in Syria in January.

The two men are being held by US-backed Syrian Kurdish forces at...

The defense official told Fox News that Kotey and El-Sheikh "are believed to have acted as guards and interpreters involved in ISIS' illegal captivity of Western hostages".

The pair are said to be one half of the infamous four-man extremist group dubbed "The Beatles" for their British accents, alongside their ringleader Mohammed Emwazi - popularly known as "Jihadi John" - and Aine Davis.

His father, Rashid Sidahmed Elsheikh, a translator living in London, said his son had travelled to Syria to fight for jihadis at the start of 2012.

Two British fighters believed to have been part of a cell of the Islamic State group that beheaded hostages should face trial, relatives of some of the cell's alleged victims have said.

The group of four British men were radicalised in the United Kingdom before travelling to Syria, where they became infamous for their high-profile executions of Western hostages.

The duo "participated in the detention, exploitation and execution of Western detainees", the American security official said in a statement.

He went on to appear in at least five other clips - showing the deaths of Steven Sotloff, aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig, Brits David Haines, Alan Henning and Japanese journalist Kenji Goto.

Several Trump administration officials including Attorney General Jeff Sessions have supported continuing to send terrorism suspects to Guantanamo. He was killed in 2015.

Diane Foley, his mother, said she wanted the two men to face trial in the United States and life imprisonment.

The US authorities refused to confirm the reports of their arrest last night.

Forget dislike; Facebook is testing a 'Downvote' button to moderate comments
A " dislike " button has been on many users' wishlist since Facebook rolled out its "like" button in February 2009. For the downvoting button, the company admits that only 5 percent of US Android users can use the new option.

A senior United States official said Kotey and Elsheikh had provided valuable information to military interrogators about the remaining ISIS leadership and support structure, which are under tremendous pressure from air and ground attacks.

The US official did not give any information on the condition of the two or what would happen to them.

Journalist Nicolas Henin says the two men should be tried in Britain, not shipped to Guantanamo Bay, because revenge will just breed more violence.

U.S. officials had sought to keep the capture of the two British suspects under wraps to allow analysts more time to pursue the intelligence leads developed from their detention and prepare raids against unsuspecting ISIS targets. ISIS have officially announced his death.

The most prized ISIS target, however, has proved the most elusive: Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group's leader.

Along with Mohammed Emwazi - the killer nicknamed Jihadi John - and Aine Davis, they are thought to have been part of a group named after the '60s band due to their English accents.
