Isis 'Beatles' militants captured in Syria: 'It is too late for a fair trial'

The daughter of an aid worker murdered by the “Isis Beatles” has voiced outrage after it emerged that one of the members of the notorious terror cell has vanished from the US prison system.

Alexanda Kotey – who earned the nickname “Jihadi George” – is listed as “not in BOP custody” on the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) website, with his release date “unknown”.

The 39-year-old from London is currently serving a life sentence for the abduction, torture and beheadings of Isis hostages in Syria including four American journalists and aid workers.
