Accused British Daesh "Beatle" convicted following arrest in UK

(MENAFN) A British man who is allegedly a member of the "Beatles" Daesh kidnapping and murder cell has been charged with terrorist charges after returning to the United Kingdom, authorities announced on Thursday.

In a statement, police stated, “a 38-year-old man has been charged with various terrorism offenses following an investigation by the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command.”

The guy has been formally identified as Aine Davis by the Metropolitan Police, which oversees anti-terror operations in the United Kingdom, and has been remanded in jail. They claimed that Davis was taken into custody when his aircraft from Turkey touched down at Luton airport.

On Thursday morning, the suspect—who does not have a definite address—was scheduled to show up in court in the heart of London.

He was supposedly a part of the Daesh cell, which between 2012 and 2015 kept scores of Western hostages in Syria under the alias "Beatles" due to their British accents.
