Member of Islamic State ‘Beatles’ Cell Is Sentenced to Life in Prison

A member of a brutal group of British Islamic State prison guards known as the “Beatles” was sentenced to life in prison for being part of a cell that murdered American hostages in Syria. U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis issued the sentence against El Shafee Elsheikh during a hearing Friday in Alexandria, Va. Elsheikh, one of the most notorious Islamic State members to be tried in a U.S. courtroom, was found guilty by a federal jury in April on eight counts, including hostage-taking resulting in death, conspiring to murder Americans outside the U.S. and conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.
