A Brit dubbed the fourth "ISIS Beatle" has been charged with terrorism charges after touching down in the UK.
Aine Davis, 38, is alleged to be a member of a terror cell known as The Beatles, named in Syria after the gang's English accent.
Having spent almost eight years rotting in a prison in Turkey, Davis was deported to the UK where he left Luton Airport in handcuffs, the Crime Prosecution Service said.
The 38 year-old has previously denied being one of the Beatles whose leader and ISIS’s beheader-in-chief Mohammed Emwazi- AKA Jihadi John – was killed at their former Syria HQ of Raqqa, in a 2015 drone strike.
Two other members, fellow Londoners Alexanda Kotey, 38, and El-Shafee el-Sheikh were arrested some time later by Western -backed Kurdish forces the SDF.
Both men were in jail in Kurd-held Rojava, northern Syria, before being airlifted to Iraq and then the States to face trial for a mixture of terrorism charges.
Kotey pleaded guilty and is now serving his sentence and el-Sheikh, 33, went to trial, only to be found guilty in April, The Mirror reports.
A Met Police spokesperson said: "A 38-year-old man has been charged with various terrorism offences following an investigation by the Met's Counter Terrorism Command.
"Aine Leslie Davis (11.02.84) of no fixed address was charged with offences contrary to sections 15, 17 and 57 of the Terrorism Act 2000.
"He has been remanded in police custody and is due to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court later this morning, Thursday, 11 August.
"On Thursday, August 10, officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command arrested a 38-year-old man at Luton Airport after he arrived into the UK on a flight from Turkey.
"He was taken to a south London police station, and subsequently charged with the above offences."
Members of the "Beatles" cell – all from west London – are thought to have volunteered to fight for IS in Syria and ended up guarding Western hostages.
US authorities have said the group killed 27 hostages, beheading several of them.
