Summary: 

Two suspected Islamic State (IS) terrorists originally from Britain - dubbed The Beatles because of their accents - have been taken from Syria into American custody. Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, dubbed "the worst of the worst" by Donald Trump, have been moved by American security services to an "undisclosed location" amid fears they could escape custody as Turkish troops invade the Syrian Kurdish-held region of north-eastern Syria.
