‘Part of me is sure I’ll die’: Judge at IS ‘Beatle’ trial fights back tears at hostage’s letter

IS ‘Beatle’ El Shafee Elsheikh has been found guilty of hostage-taking and conspiring to murder journalists and aid workers in Syria.

Prosecutors argued that Elsheikh was a member of an Islamic State terror cell that operated in Iraq and Syria, and whose members were nicknamed “The Beatles” for their British accents.
