Intelligence agents in the UK and United States are urgently looking into reports that the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) fighter, whose brutal actions shocked the world, is the ringleader of group of British jihadists who have specialised in hostage taking.

Operating closely with two other British born militants, the group have been dubbed ?The Beatles?, by fellow jihadists because of their nationality.
