An American woman whose son was killed by the Islamic State said Thursday that she is hopeful the transfer to US custody of two British militants brings them a step closer to criminal charges.

Mohammed Emwazi, the man who killed Americans James Foley, Steven Sotloff, Peter Kassig and diverse hostages in 2014, was killed in a drone strike the following three hundred and sixty five days.

"We need some semblance of justice for the horrific execution and torture of the Americans", Foley said.

Alexanda Kotey, 35, and El Shafee Elsheikh, 31 - whose group got the nickname due to their British accents - are now being held in a "secure location secured by the USA", the president said on Twitter. They have reportedly been transferred to "a secure location controlled by the U.S".

"We have taken a certain number of ISIS fighters who are particularly bad and we've wanted to make sure nothing happened to them with respect to getting out".

"Kidnapping people is illegal, but the question is whether that will be enforceable in the U.S. courts", he said. There's also been debate over Britain providing information that might be used against the two in any future prosecution in the United States.

Both CNN and the Washington Post also reported the US military had taken custody of the two fighters, while ABC said they had been transferred to a safe location.

"The global coalition should meet because we are in a new situation and because the fight against Daesh risks reigniting as Daesh was waiting for this opportunity", Le Drian said, referring to IS by its Arabic name. Elsheikh and Kotey were captured in eastern Syria a year ago by the Kurdish-led, USA -backed Syrian Democratic Forces amid the collapse of IS.

They were captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in January 2018.

Emwazi was killed in a USA air strike in 2015. Foley was the first American citizen killed by ISIS.

"He was very concerned about this issue and concerned that they be held accountable for their disgusting crimes", Foley said.

That decision had been challenged by Elsheikh's mother, who took her case to the supreme court in London, to prevent the two men being extradited to the U.S. and instead put on trial in their home country.

"They were not pampered", Elsheikh said. "That's where they want to go", the president said.
