‘All terrorism is about the spread of hatred… If we hate, they win’, says brother of Islamic State victim David Haines

Washington Correspondent

Alexanda Kotey was one of the so-called Beatles, an Islamic State cell of four British men that tortured and murdered mainly western hostages in the mid-2010s.

Our Washington correspondent, Siobhan Kennedy, met Mike to get his reaction after Alexanda Kotey was jailed for life in a US court.
