British jihadis could be sent to Guantanamo Bay after the UK is being seen to do little to punish them, it has been reported.

US officials believe the UK is not doing enough to punish people returning from as they are offered rehabilitation programmes, rather than facing legal consequences.

According to The Times there is a growing opinion the UK is avoiding its responsibility over extremist converts who have joined .

Now, the paper has been told the two surviving members of the British terrorist group known as ‘The Beatles’ because of their English accents, El Shafee ElSheikh and Alexanda Kotey, could be prosecuted in America.

The Trump administration fears they could end up evading justice and want to send them to Guantanamo where there is room for about 50 jihadis.

‘These guys have American blood on their hands,’ a source told The Times.

US photographer James Foley was executed by the leader of ‘The Beatles’ Mohammed Emwazi known as Jihadi John. 

Fresh talks over how jihadis who return from Syria are dealt with have begun after the discovery of one of the three schoolgirls from Bethnal Green who fled to Syria in 2015.
