Al Shafie Sheikh

What was going on in the minds of my parents, a member of the “beetle” cell in the Islamic State, defender Sheikh, was that their son, who bears the name of one of the most prominent trade union figures and the Sudanese communist figure, the defender, Ahmed Al-Sheikh, would become an extremist jihadist who would not hesitate to practice the worst forms of torture against his victims in defense of the “Islamic Caliphate”.

Al-Shafie was indicted by a U.S. federal court on charges of committing terrorist acts, participating in the abduction and killing of U.S. citizens, and providing support to a terrorist organization. He is expected to be sentenced to life in prison.

Al-Shafei was a member of an ISIS cell that carried out kidnappings and executions of journalists and Western aid workers.

The cell was named “The Beatles” because of the English accents of its members. The cell was involved in the abduction of at least 27 people in Syria between 2012 and 2015, most of them from the United States, Denmark, France, Japan, Norway and Spain. Some of the abductees were released after their governments paid a ransom for their release.
