Boris Johnson has hit back at criticism for letting two British jihadis face the death penalty in America.
He insisted that if the Government had been able to order their deaths with a drone strike in Syria, ‘too damn right we would’.
Alexanda Kotey and Shafee Elsheikh are linked to the murder of 27 Western hostages.
They are members of the IS terror gang of four men from west London dubbed The Beatles – which included the notorious executioner Jihadi John. Kotey and Elsheikh, who have been stripped of British citizenship, now face extradition from Syria to the US on terrorism charges.
