Britain has stripped two Islamic State hostage-killers from London of their British citizenship and is not expected to try to bring them to the United Kingdom to stand trial, The Times understands.
The news of Kotey and Elsheikh's capture was first reported by the New York Times, which said the two were detained by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces fighting the last pockets of IS militants in Syria along the Euphrates River south of the border with Iraq.
"Their crimes are beyond imagination", she said. "So everybody has a right for a fair trial and for justice".
"Between us, we called them the Beatles because we didn't know their names. If they don't get justice, they will use it to fuel their propaganda".
They were the last two of a killer Islamic State quartet - named after The Beatles due to their English accents - who were still at large.
The four young men from west London, who were given their nickname by the hostages because of their British accents, were linked to a string of murders in Iraq and Syria. Both men were stripped of their British citizenship, according to the New York Times, and it is not clear if the Justice Department will seek to prosecute the men or whether the USA military will take custody of them.
Elsheikh arrived in Britain as a child when his communist-supporting parents fled Sudan.
Diane Foley said she is "grateful, really grateful" to learn about the capture of two Islamic State group members responsible for her son's death in Syria.

After a brief interrogation, SDF officials suspected that the two were of western origin and informed US Special Operation forces.
" French journalist Nicolas Henin, who was held captive by Islamic State for 10 months, demanded the men be brought to justice". "Elsheikh was said to have earned a reputation for waterboarding, mock executions and crucifixions while serving as an ISIS jailer", the State Department said.
Mohammed Emwazi - known as "Jihadi John" - was believed to be the executioner of the hostages and was killed in a U.S. drone strike in 2015.
Kotey is said to have acted as a guard and is implicated in numerous acts of brutality, including one incident in which a Danish hostage had his 25th birthday marked with a beating that consisted of 25 kicks to his ribs.
The fourth member, Davis, was convicted of being a member of a terrorist organisation and jailed for seven-and-a-half years by a court in Silivri, Turkey, in May 2017.
Bethany Haines, whose British aid worker father David was killed in 2014 after being held captive for 18 months, said she hoped the pair's detention could bring closure.
The American authorities must now decide whether to extradite the two men to the mainland U.S. to face a criminal trial or place them in military custody, possibly in the notorious Guantanamo Bay camp.
