Brit ISIS jihadi in grovelling apology for ‘Beatles’ cell role – as he faces US execution
El Shafee Elsheikh, who was born in Sudan but grew up in London, confessed to helping the terror group ransom western captives back to their families.
Elsheikh, known as George, spoke alongside Alexanda Kotey, known as Ringo, another British ISIS fighter.
They were captured in eastern Syria by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in Syria back in January and stripped of their British citizenship.
If extradited to the US, Elsheikh and Kotey could face the death penalty for the murders of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, along with aid worker Pete Kassig.
The pair are accused of torturing their captives and Elsheikh is said to have earned a reputation for water-boarding and mock executions.

They earlier demanded a “fair and just” trial in Britain – despite admitting they “don’t believe in democracy”.
Showing contempt for western legal systems, both fighters sarcastically reminded the UK to “adhere to that which they claim to be champions of”.
