US charges two alleged ISIS members for the torture, killing of hostages including 4 Americans

Global News published this video item, entitled “US charges two alleged ISIS members for the torture, killing of hostages including 4 Americans” – below is their description.

The Justice Department unsealed charges Wednesday against two Islamic State (ISIS) militants from Britain, accusing them of carrying out a gruesome campaign of torture, beheadings and other acts of violence against Western hostages they had captured in Syria, including four Americans. El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey are two of four men dubbed “the Beatles” by the hostages they held captive because of their British accents. The charges are a milestone in a years-long effort by U.S. authorities to bring to justice members of the group known for beheadings and barbaric treatment of aid workers, journalists and other hostages in Syria. The men’s arrival in the U.S. sets the stage for arguably the most sensational terrorism trial since the 2014 criminal case against the suspected ringleader of a deadly attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.
