A member of the infamous ISIS execution squad dubbed “The Beatles” was arrested at London’s Luton Airport in England on Thursday.
Aine Davis, 38, touched down within the UK after spending over seven years behind bars in Turkey for being a member of the terrorist group.
After touchdown in England, Davis was arrested by the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Unit. He stays in custody on terror prices at the moment.
Davis is the fourth alleged member of the Islamic State cell referred to as “The Beatles” — aptly nicknamed due to their British accents.
The 4 males left the UK to combat in Syria the place they tortured and beheaded Western hostages and famously posted the harrowing movies on-line. Davis reportedly denied having any half within the group.
“The CPS licensed the Metropolitan Police to cost Aine Leslie Junior Davis for terrorism offenses in 2014, and after being deported to England by Turkish authorities, he has been arrested at Luton airport following his return to the UK,” the Crown Prosecution Service stated in a press release to The Submit.
“Mr. Davis, 38, has been charged with terrorism offenses and possession of a firearm for a objective related with terrorism.”
British prosecutors stated they initially licensed Davis’ prices beneath terrorism legal guidelines again in 2014.
After he landed on British soil Thursday, he was arrested on suspicion of breaching the Terrorism Act 2000, that means he’s being held on suspicion of fundraising and possession of articles for terrorist functions, in line with London’s Metropolitan Police.
“The Beatles” squad group grew to become notorious after movies emerged on-line which confirmed them ruthlessly beheading hostages, with US authorities believing they killed 27 in whole.
These murdered included journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, in addition to assist employees Kayla Mueller and Peter Kassig, between 2012 and 2015. Different victims included two British assist employees and two Japanese journalists.
