US won’t seek death penalty for IS ‘Beatles’ pair if UK extradites them

The US will not seek the death penalty against two Islamic State fighters who were part of the execution squad known as the “Beatles”.
In a letter to Home Secretary Priti Patel, America’s attorney general promised that if Britain grants their extradition request, they would not execute the pair.
William Barr wrote to Ms Patel with the undertaking, in the hopes this would be enough to secure the movement of El Shafee Elsheikh and Alexanda Kotey.
