They formed part of a gang dubbed "The British Beatles" by their prisoners.

Their other victims included British aid worker Alan Henning, US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and American aid worker Peter Kassig.

"My personal opinion is that they should die a long, slow, painful death".

"Their crimes are beyond imagination".

She said she wanted them to be "locked up with the key thrown away".

But French journalist Nicolas Henin, who was kidnapped and held by Islamic State for 10 months, demanded the men be brought to justice in the UK.

It was not clear whether the Justice Department would prosecute the two men or when the USA military would take custody of them.

Kotey and Elsheikh were the last two of "the Beatles" still at large.

Kotey, from west London, was a guard for the execution cell.

There were some indications that the two men initially sought to hide their identities, but the Special Operations forces routinely run fingerprint checks and other biometric measurements to identify known terrorist leaders and catalog rank-and-file militants. He was the masked militant who featured in gruesome IS videos, taunting Western powers before beheading hostages.

Aine Davis, another member of the foursome, was reportedly captured and is being held in Turkey.

The fourth "Beatle" was London-born Aine Davis.

"Bringing my son into this is rubbish". Davis was arrested in Turkey in 2015. "It will come to light that he wasn't (in the cell)". "I didn't know what to feel, I didn't know what to think and then you kind of realise it's real and you think that's it, they're gone, they can't hurt anyone else".

"I think it's very important that when people execute such awful atrocities that they be found and brought to justice", she said.

The 27-year-old went on to appear in numerous other clips, including those which showed the execution of British aid workers Alan Henning and David Haines, American journalist Steven Sotloff, and U.S. aid worker Abdul-Rahman Kassig. A father-of-two and a convert to Islam in his late teens or early 20s, the USA identified him as a cell member in January 2017.

Families of some victims of the "Beatles", four suspected members of a British Islamic State cell, said Friday that two militants of the group captured in January should face justice in the West.

The U.S. government said he hung on to the information to protect intelligence information.

Britain's the Daily Telegraph newspaper said it understood that London would not hinder any moves to extradite the pair to the US. These men will have been priority targets - but not the only ones.

He continued: "This is the beginning of a process that will bring them eventually, hopefully, to a trial".

Sky News has taken a closer look at the four west Londoners who left home to fight for Islamic State.
