2 of the ISIS executioner 'Beatles' captured in Syria

The pair were part of "ISIS Beatles" who participated in beheading of hostages

According to two U.S. officials, Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh were recently captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces and are being interrogated by U.S. interrogators.

Kotey and Elsheikh were the two remaining members of the ISIS "Beatles" quartet who remained on the battlefield.

Aine Davis, another member of the foursome, was reportedly captured and is being held in Turkey.

The pair's capture was first reported by the New York Times.

Kotey and Elsheikh were captured in early January by the Syrian Democratic Forces during an operation in eastern Syria, according to a U.S. official.

They are believed to have acted as guards and interpreters involved in ISIS’ illegal captivity of Western hostages, said the official.

ABC News' 20/20 has previously reported that Mueller was being held hostage by "The Beatles" and that she once boldly corrected Jihadi John when he wrongly told other hostages that she had converted to Islam.

A senior U.S. official confirmed that part of the interrogation of Kotey and Elsheikh is aimed at finding the remains of Western hostages, particularly Americans, who were killed during their ISIS captivity.
