traveled to syria one year ago, flying to turkey and then crossing the boarder to join his brother who was already fighting for the radical islamic group called al nusra. in syria, he received training in weapons explosives breaking and entering and hand-to-hand combat. but before he could get to the front lines, mohammed was recruited by a cleric to return to the u.s. to carry out an attack. >> this case shows you how much the world of counterterrorism is changing. >> reporter: philip mudd is a former fbi agent and author of the book "the head game." he says the trip to syria made mohammed more of a threat than the typical homegrown terrorist. >> the concern you have to have in this case is not only that somebody came home again after traveling overseas to fight but what kind of sophistication or training might people like this have received overseas. >> reporter: mohammed was arrested last february on state charges in ohio and held on a million dollars bail so he could not flee the country while the

7:07 am
ground-based laser light which is typically provide a visual warning to planes close to breaching the airspace surface-to-air missiles and helicopters or jets make up the air defense system. but it admits detecting and tracking low, slow flyers is a technical and operational challenge. on radar they can look similar to birds or weather patterns. new technology called j-lens is being tested to detect smaller aircraft, but it won't be operational for a few months. >> whether or not our detection system could pick it up. >> reporter: congressman benny thompson is the ranking member of the homeland security committee. >> our systems of detection should have worked. if now somebody tells us that system does not pick up low-flying objects then we have to fix it. >> reporter: the judge banned doug hughs from flying anything and ordered him to stay away from washington except for his visits to court.

7:10 am
heavy weapons into the refinery. abandoned iraqi military vehicles burn nearby and officials warn isis may be close to taking over the city of ramadi to fight those u.s. air strikes going on there. those gains by isis come as iraq's prime minister wrapped up his first official visit to the white house. last night, i sat down with hider al abad diin washington and asked about reports he's working against the scene of coalition air strikes in yemen bombing rebels backed by iran. it doesn't help if you start bombarding that country. does it reduce the regional involvement in the country or increase it? it's obvious it will increase. >> it so you don't believe the saudi air strikes help the situation in yemen? >> not at all. in my opinion, it's an increase. >> so they shouldn't be doing it? >> yes, i think they shouldn't. >> he refers to isis by its arabic acronym, dash.
7:11 am
he says iran is supporting the fight against isis inside iraq but not providing troops. >> if you drive dash out of iraq is iran going to have more influence than the united states would like for it to have in iraq? >> well getting support in terms of intelligence, in terms of a crisis, in terms of training and weapons or not getting support from any country, whether the international coalition or iran in terms of soldiers fighting on the ground are the iraqis. only iraqis are fighting on the ground. >> no iranians fighting on the ground? >> no. >> even though there are iranian advisors? >> exactly. and they don't fight. they don't carry arms. they're not allowed to do that. >> do they give instructions to the shi'a militia? >> well they give advice. now i have to be clear on this. if they are giving advice if they are making militias in
7:12 am
iraq, they would consider this as hostile to iraq. >> he says there will be no additional boots on the ground and that iraq has not asked the administration for more troops. you can see more of my interview tonight on my pbs program. italy's prime minister meets with president obama at the white house this morning. mateo renzi's government is under severe fresh grur a huge influx of migrants fleeing africa and the middle east by sea. on thursday a boat load of clarissa ward sent this report from the scene. >> reporter: we're here with about 301 migrants. you can see them behind me and around me. most of them are covered in these emergency foil blankets. those are designed to help keep them warm because hypothermia, believe it or not, is one of the leading causes of death when it comes to these migrants.
7:13 am
we went out on a search-and-rescue mission with the italian coast guard on board this ship and they came across essentially what looked like a small fishing boat from a distance. we didn't believe there could be more than 40 or 50 people inside it but it turned out that there were 301 people on board, none of them wearing life jackets with limited food limited water and, among them not only women and children but some pregnant women. the vast majority of migrants on this ship are from eritrea but i also spoke with some tunisians and syrians trying to flee the civil war. they're actually flying from turkey to sudan and driving over to libya because libya is where this problem is really starting now that there is so little law and order in that country. the smugglers having a field day and they just continue to push out thousands upon thousands of refugees and the italian coast guard have no choice but to obey the laws of the sea and to try
7:14 am
to rescue everyone who calls for their help. >> that again was clarissa ward on an italian coast guard ship. police in sicily have detained 15 muslim migrants accused of throwing 12 christians overboard during another boat trip from libya. chinese protesters and human rights groups are speaking out against a lengthy prison sentence for a journalist. she faces seven years in prison. seth seth doane is in beijing. >> reporter: 44 journalists were sitting in chinese jails as of late last year so while this story is about one journalist it's indicative of a wider trend as the communist party clamps down on dissent. inside this court building today, gao yu learned she'd spend seven years behind bars for leaking state secrets. the 71-year-old journalist is known for her reporting on the
7:15 am
communist party elite and was convicted for publicizing the so-called document number nine allegedly a government edict to restrict democracy, civil society and press freedoms. the last time we saw gao, her face blurred was in this confession broadcast on state tv. >> translator: i will admit my wrongdoing. >> her lawyer claims the confession was forced. a friend of gao's today asked how can exposing negative news be called revealing secrets? gao was detained almost a year ago. her lawyer tells cbs news she will appeal. chin knees journalists tell us this crackdown is very real and having a chilling effect on reporting. people are simply too scared to say anything that runs contrary to the communist party. norah? >> chuck do parksane in beijing, thank
7:16 am

7:17 am
>> by myself! please! >> reporter: passengers heard the man pounding on the ceiling of the cargo hold which was captured on cell phone video. >> i heard some guy i'm assuming he's an air marshal just suddenly say, you know we're turning around we're landing. >> the plane landed after 14 minutes, meanwhile, the 911 operator followed up with airport police. >> okay so i just had this guy call and he says he is on alaska flight 448 and he's screaming at me saying he couldn't breathe and he was stuck on the flight. >> okay so we are actually getting an aircraft landing right now with an alert where we think someone is trapped in the baggage compartment. >> oh. >> or something else. >> oh, my gosh okay. >> reporter: the man was taken to a local hospital where he passed a drug test and was released. airport officials say he's back in the job but as a contracted employee he's banned from working with alaska airlines. for cbs "this morning," john
