Washington, Oct 10 (AFP/APP): Two “high-value” militants held by Syrian Kurds have been taken into United States custody and moved out of the country, a defense official said Wednesday, as reports identified them as notorious British fighters dubbed “The Beatles.”

“I can confirm that we’ve taken custody of two high-value individuals from the SDF,” the defense official said on condition of anonymity.

“They have been moved out of Syria and are in a secure location,” the official said, without identifying where. “They are being held in military custody pursuant to the law of war.”
