Britain's interior minister has indicated London would not object to Washington seeking the death penalty against two British Daesh (ISIS) militants if they are extradited to the United States, the Daily Telegraph reported Monday.According to the Telegraph, Javid wrote to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions saying Britain was not intending to request that the two men be sent to the United Kingdom, saying a successful prosecution in the United States was more likely.Furthermore, he said Britain would not insist on guarantees the men would not be executed.The opposition Labour Party accused Javid of "secretly and unilaterally" abandoning Britain's opposition to the death penalty.
