ISIS ‘Beatles’ claim they won’t be given a fair trial

Relatives of western hostages murdered by Islamic State extremists in Syria have reacted furiously after two Britons accused of being members of the cell claimed they wouldn’t get a fair trial tried for their “horrific crimes”.

Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, from west London, were captured by Kurdish fighters in January and claim they are now at risk of “rendition and torture”.
