rally more support for the military campaign against islamic extremists. marlie hall is at the united nations. good morning, marlie. >> reporter: anne-marie, good morning. now here at the u.n. world leaders will be discussing a number of issues, but there's one topic that will get much of the attention. president obama will stand before more than 140 heads of state and government at the united nations today and address global issues. at the top of the list, isis. the u.s. along with arab allies began launching air strikes against isis targets inside syria monday night. the first strike in a sustained campaign to defeat the terror group. yesterday the president met with representatives from the five nations who participated. >> i think we now have an opportunity to send a very clear message that the world is united. >> reporter: air strikes targeted isis communication, training, and supply centers. >> they will adapt to what we've done and seek to address their
shortfalls and gaps against our air campaign in the coming weeks. >> reporter: president obama will also chair a security council meeting here at the u.n. today. members are expected to adopt a resolution that would require countries to pass laws to try to prevent their citizens from joining terrorist groups. >> the threat of foreign terrorist fighters is very real, and we have to start with the uncomfortable reality that security measures alone will ot solve this problem. >> reporter: the national counterterrorism center estimates 15,000 foreign fighters have traveled to the middle east to join groups like isis. now, many of the diplomats coming here to the u.n. today are hoping that the isis crisis won't drown out other world issues that need attention like the ebola outbreak in west africa and the instability in the ukraine. anne-marie? >> marlie hall, thank you.
besides striking isis in syria, the united states on its own attack a second terrorist group affiliated with al qaeda. administration officials say they've been watching the little known khorasan group for years. it's believed it was plotting imminent attacks against u.s. and europe. bob orr has that part of the story. >> reporter: taking advantage of the lawlessness inside syria, khorasan, a veteran of al qaeda operati operatives, has been working on new hard-to-detect bombs that can be smuggled aboard airplanes. al qaeda has experimented with nonmetallic bombs that may be hidden in shoes, clothing, cell phones, laptops, even tubes of toothpaste. that intelligence prompted the tsa in july to tighten security for u.s.-bound flights from two dozen airports. sources say khorasan which takes instruction from al qaeda takes it from experts like tom bomb
maker al siri. based in yemen, he's the investor of the bombs placed in underwear. unlike isis, khorasan is not battling for territory. instead sources say it's plotting external attacks against the west and recruiting american and european radicals. western passport holders will join the jihad in syria could be used to carry bombs onto planes. lieutenant general william mayville said the air strikes encore zo encoo encoo encoo encoon khorazan disruptsed an imnenlts plot against intelligence than the khorasan group was in the final stages of planning targets against potentially u.s. homeland.
>> they work in tandem with al nusra, al qaeda's affiliate in syria. this video seems to show extensive damage from the air strikes and now the u.s. is trying to determine if a major khorasan leader was killed. on twitter they're claiming al fadhli died in the bombings. he's on the list of the most wanted terrorists. now the u.s. is government is warning about the potential for retaliatory attacks in the name of home grown lone wolves. they're telling police to be aware but they say there's no credible specific threat at the moment. bob orr, cbs news, washington. mike morell, former deputy director of the cia says isis and the khorasan group pose dangerous but different types of threats to the american homeland. >> so i think today there are two threats. one comes from al nusra, the khorasan group, which has the ability to reach out with foreign fighters and with the help of al qaeda and yemen, match them up with sophisticated explosives that could bring down an airliner. that's the threat we're dealing with today and that's the threat we hopefully disrupted. the other threat is from isis
and it's them sending their foreign fighters back to the united states to conduct less sophisticated attacks. those are the threats today. >> well, we have more on the campaign against isis and the khorasan group coming up on "cbs this morning." u.s. health officials spelled out a worst-case scenario for the west african ebola epidemic. the centers for disease control says the number of infected people could reach 1.4 million by mid-january if international efforts to control the disease aren't stepped up. in the past six months 5,800 cases have been reported and 2,800 deaths. in virginia, the suspect in the disappearance of a missing student hannah graham has been charged with abduction. police have searched jesse leroy matth matthew's car and his apartment b buthave not located him. bigad shaban reports.
