toyota. let's go places. as you wake up in the west, a new terror attack is unfolding in west africa. security forces in mali, africa rated a hotel where gunmen have hostages. >> a senior official tells cbs news americans were registered at the radisson blu hotel in bamako. american special forces are at the scene. mark phillips is following the story. >> reporter: good morning. the u.s. citizens involved in the hotel were personnel from the embassy. they now appear to be out of danger. te ten militants rammed into the hotel, with grenades, shouting allahu akbar, god is great, the jihadist battle cry. at its peak, as many as 170
7:04 am
hostages, guests and staff, were reportedly being held by the attackers. about a dozen of the hostages were released if they could recite passages from the koran. there are conflicting reports as to the number still being held. ma malians say 80 are still being held. the u.s. embassy has asked u.s. citizens to shelter in place wherever they are. there may be a link between this attack and that in paris a week ago. mali is a former french colony and french troops went in to put down an islamist rebellion two years ago. but several islamist militant groups are still operating in the country, and there have been other attacks. there are a thousand french troops still in mali and a u.n.
7:05 am
peacekeeping force, but today's attack is showing it's still far from secure. >> mark, thanks. a fbi special agent joins us. welcome. >> thank you, sir. >> from what you know, what do the developments in mali say? >> mali is an area where al qaeda in the islamic world is active. affiliates of al qaeda were able to control mali at one point, and the french intervened in 2013. i wouldn't be surprised if al qaeda or one of its affiliates were behind that attack, because al qaeda today definitely don't want to be upstaged by isis in paris. >> we've been so focused on isis because of the situation in
7:06 am
syria and what happened in paris. you say you're more worried about al qaeda. >> i'm worried about both. al qaeda might be stateless, but the state of al qaeda is very strong. we have to remember, isis came out from al qaeda. al qaeda is an ideological narrative that provides the jihadi extremists with the passion and their goals. al qaeda today is way stronger than it used to be on 9/11. on 9/11, they had 400 members. now they have armies in syria, they have armies in yemen. >> under what name? >> in syria they fight under al nusra, an al qaeda affiliate in syria. in yemen they fight under aqap. now they control the third largest city in the country. in the islamic world they are very active, not only in mali and algeria but also tunisia and libya. we have to be very careful about al qaeda. >> are they in competition, al qaeda and isis?
7:07 am
>> yes. they are in competition. they are basically -- isis used to be part of al qaeda. al qaeda is the poisonous tree and isis is just a branch of that tree. isis is a symptom of a disease. al qaeda is the decide. >> let's go back to the bombings in france, where the mastermind has been confirmed dead. how important is that? >> it's very important. first of all, it gives some sense of closure, the ring leader is dead. also with the operation in saint-denis, they were able to disrupt a second phase of terrorism. so now french sources tell us that there was maps for charles de gaulle airport, for the defense district in paris. they found explosives, they found weapons. that is extremely important. still there is a lot of things that need to be done. that threat level in paris remains high. >> we keep hearing the snake has
7:08 am
many heads. >> look at the network that conducted this attack. this network is not only a network in france. it's also in belgium. now i think they are searching for a terrorist in the netherlands, salah abdeslam. >> thank you very much. new information this morning on the deadly police raid in france that killed the suspected planner of last week's terror attacks. a french tv video appears to show a female suicide bomber in that raid. a third person is said to have died in the apartment. holly williams is in paris with the latest. holly, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. french media is report today that new security camera video has emerged of the suspected mastermind, abdelhamid abaaoud, in a paris subway station just after the attacks on friday night. he's now confirmed dead. but his fellow attacker, salah abdeslam, is thought to be still on the run, and french officials
7:09 am
say they have no idea where he is. unlike seven of the attackers, salah abdeslam didn't blow himself up. but instead he slipped through the fingers of the police as he escaped. french media is reporting that this is hasna aitboulahcen, thought to have detonated a suicide bomb on wednesday as police stormed the hideout of abaaoud. french police say they found her passport at the scene and identified her body using fingerprints. this audio apparently records hasna aitboulahcen's last moments alive as police demanded to know the whereabouts of abaaoud. french media obtained video that purportedly shows the moment of the blast. acquaintances said hasna
7:10 am
aitboulahcen didn't seem like an islamic extremisextremist. she loved to party, she smoked, she drank in the evenings, said this man who claimed to have known her. police searched her mother's apartment, one of nearly 800 locations rated by the police. they say abaaoud was able to reenter europe undetected, raising concerns about border controls. around a thousand french citizens are thought to have joined extremist groups in iraq and syria. and more than 200 are believed to have returned home. the french senate will vote later on today on whether to extent this country's state of emergency for another three months. that would allow the french police to place people under house arrest without a trial and to raid their homes without a warrant. norah? >> holly williams in paris, thank you.
7:11 am
top u.s. law enforcement officers are urging americans this morning to turn their fear of a terror attack into action. that follows a new isis video where the terror group threatens to blow up the white house. jeff pegues is near the white house where they say they're raid for any challenge. >> reporter: good morning. the daily propaganda videos from isis prompted officials to want to tamp down fear and reassure a nervous public. the isis video threatens an attack in the u.s., this time targeting the white house. fbi director james comey says law enforcement is not aware of any credible threat here of a paris-type attack. >> we have seen no connection at all between the paris attackers and the united states. >> reporter: still, the fbi is investigating what it calls a few dozen people deemed highest risk for carrying out a copycat paris-style attack.
7:12 am
comey vowed to cover them like a blanket. u.s. officials remain concerned about lone wolf attacks inspired by those isis videos. the department of justice is taking another look at all the individuals on their radar who may be isis sympathizers. it could lead to a flurry of arrests, as it did over the summer. in june there was a confrontation after a terrorism suspect in boston charged officers with a knife. he was shot and killed. since 2013, more than 70 people have been charged with attempting to join isis or other terrorism-related offenses. u.s. attorney general loretta lynch. >> we take all threats seriously. we're acting aggressively to defuse threats as they emerge. we're vigorously prosecuting those who seek to harm the american people. >> reporter: after an isis threat to rome, the state
7:13 am
department issued a warning to american citizens in italy to remain vigilant. >> jeff, thanks. u.s. air strikes are helping forces in iraq, but so are fighters on the ground. charlie d'agata in erbil met some americans who have joined the fight. charlie? >> reporter: good morning. as far as these guys are concerned, air strikes have made a huge difference on the battlefield. they say when isis hears planes, they run. but for the first time, as u.s. soldiers, they have found themselves outgunned. the explosion caught the americans off-guard. [ gunfire ] >> reporter: for these former u.s. soldiers, it's a return to a deadly war zone.
7:14 am
this time they're fighting alongside kurdish forces. they're volunteers in the battle against isis, also known as daesh, who have did you go ug i the oil-rich region in kir curbing. >> we've got daesh to the left in the village, when you get up here. >> this is an isis flag i captured in my first offensive. >> reporter: ohio native chris kidd was a marine sergeant in 2004 and fought in some of the fiercest battles of the iraq war. >> i watched isis try to take over iraq. i felt like it was destroying everything we worked so hard to get. we didn't fight and die for nothing. >> reporter: kidd sold his house and quit his job to join the new war against isis. he's teamed up with about ten u.s. vets, including this former army lieutenant from arkansas. he wears a body camera.
7:15 am
to protect his family, we agreed not to use his name. >> they thought i was crazy for coming out here. they supportive now. >> reporter: do they still think you're crazy? >> probably. >> reporter: the men told us they're in it for the long haul. i met couple of guys from boston. i asked them what they missed from home. they said watching the patriots this season. >> a lot of people can relate to that. thanks, charlie d'agata from iraq. this morning, a bill challenging president obama's plan to bring in syrian refugees is headed for the senate. the legislation would require the fbi director, the director of national intelligence and the homeland security secretary to certify that each applicant poses to threat. republican presidential candidate donald trump wants to go further and register all muslims in a database. nancy cordes has more.
7:16 am
>> reporter: good morning. we've heard a lot of suggestions from presidential candidates this week about how to handle syrian refugees but donald trump seemed to take things a step further on thursday, when he anticipated to endorse a muslim database that would be used to track all muslims living here in the u.s. >> there should be a lot of systems beyond database. we should have a lot of systems. and today you can do it. but right now, we have to have a border. we have to have strength. we have to have a wall. >> reporter: during a campaign stop in iowa, trump was asked if he would consider using a database to track muslims living in the u.s. >> i would certainly implement that. absolutely. >> reporter: later in the day, he seemed to back away from the idea, when asked about it again. >> hello, everyone. >> reporter: dr. ben carson used a canine analogy to describe the challenges of screening refugees. >> if there's a rabid dog running around your neighborhood, you're probably not going to assume something good about that dog.
7:17 am
it donald truesn't mean that yo all dogs. we have to have in place screening mechanisms that allow us to determine who the mad dogs are. >> reporter: democratic candidates argued against even a temporary hold on accepting refugees. frontrunner hillary clinton argued the refugees are fleeing the same terrorists threatening the united states. >> turning away orphans, applying a religious test, discriminating against muslims, slamming the door on every syrian refugee, that is just not who we are. we are better than that. >> reporter: former florida governor jeb bush struck a different tone than many of his gop rivals, who say the refugees should be kept out. >> we need to be cautious as we go through this not to get to a point where our emotions overtake our brain. >> reporter: bush did strike back at president obama, who
7:18 am
criticized him for his idea to focus on allowing in syrian christians instead of muslims. by the way, charlie, we reached out to the trump campaign for clarification on this idea of a database to track muslims, but they haven't gotten back to us. >> thanks, nancy. jonathan pollard, convicted of spying in the 1980s, is free on parole. he was spotted at the new york city parole office this morning after leaving a north carolina prison. he served 28 years of a life sense of for selling u.s. secrets to israel. pollard was a navy intelligence analyst at the time. the 61-year-old is required to remain in the united states for five years. israel's prime mince, benjamin netanyahu, has reportedly asked to have pollard returned to israel immediately. the white house says there have been no changes to the terms of his parole. some sad news to report, 18-year-old ezra schwartz was
7:19 am
killed in israel, among volunteers delivering food to israeli soldiers. he died when a palestinian driver fired at other cars and plowed into a group of pedestrians. the region has seen a wave of violence following a dispute over holy sites. this morning, evidence of a record drug bus. >> reporter: i'm carter evans aboard a coast guard cutter. you're looking at three quarters of a billion dollars worth of cocaine, all seized by the coast guard on the open ocean before it made it to u.s. shores.

we'ltake you along on a bust that netted almost a billion dollars worth of drugs. fans are saying hello to adele's new album. if you want to hear it, you cannot get it on streaming music services. ahead, the controversy over the the way the album is being released. time for this morning's headlines. the "wall street journal" reports on the biggest health insurance company considering pulling out of the obamacare. unitedhealth group said it suffered major losses on policies sold on the exchanges. their losses this year will total $700 million. the san diego union tribune reports on more mexicans leaving that moving to the u.s. it said between 2009 and 2014, more than a million mexicans left the u.s. for mexico. in that same period, 870,000

mechani mexicans entered the u.s. some went back to see family, others were deported. si this salmon is the first genetically altered food declared safe to eat in the u.s. the law does not require the engineered finish to be specifically labeled. former subway spokesman jared fogle was sentenced to nearly 16 years in prison. a judge delivered the sentence thursday, three months after the 38-year-old entered a plea bargain. fogle admitted to trading child importapornography and crossing lines to have sex with underage girls. the sentence was more harsh than the prosecutors' recommendation. the boston globe reports a boston bombing survivor claims prosthetics she uses to dance were lost by american airlines.
7:33 am
she tweeted, you lost my luggage with over $250,000 worth of parts. the airline promises to have an update this morning. something tells me they'll find it and if not, replace it asap. >> it's in their interests to do that. we have an update on the terrorist attack at the bamako, mali hotel. six americans were rescued from the hotel. more americans may still be inside. fbi director james comey says there are no credible terror threats to this country, but his agency is tracking people considered high risk to carry out attacks. sunday on "60 minutes," anderson cooper looks at how u.s. law enforcement agencies are changing their advice for what you should do if confronted with
7:34 am
an active shooter. here is a preview. >> reporter: according to the fbi, 60% of shooting attraction are over before police arrive. >> your options are run, hide, or fight. if you're in a position to take the gunman down or out, it's your best possibility. and that's counterinto tto ttc always tell people to run, we've never told people to take action. this is a different scenario. >> reporter: you're telling them that now, though? >> we are. >> reporter: to get the message out, police departments are making videos like these that inform the public to use furniture and barricade their offices to hide from an attacker. they also emphasize creative ways to fight back. according to the fbi, in 13% of active shooter attacks, unarmed
7:35 am
civilians were able to stop the gunmen. it is important to remember that as tragic and scary as these active shooter incidents are, it's unlikely you'll be caught up in one. a person's chance of being in one of these incidents is one in 2 million. do you worry about an overreaction, people getting too scared of something which in all likelihood they'll never encounter? >> reporter: you can be prepared and have a society that is resilient and alert and conscientious and safer without saring people. >> sunday on "60 minutes," anderson shows us how officers are retraining after other shootings at places like columbine high school and the washington navy yard. >> it's a troubling sign of the timings.
7:36 am
you see it on planes, people intervene when they think there's something wrong and don't wait for instructions to do so. >> i hope it's clear, though, exactly what they're recommending. this morning the u.s. coast guard is celebrating a massive drug bust off the coast of central and south america, part of an historic year in the battle. officials say 80% of cocaine smuggled into this country comes via small boats and submarines. carter evans is at the coast guard base in san pedro, calfornia. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the coast guard just delivered more than 25 tons of confiscated cocaine to dea agents waiting onshore. the head of the agency told us if they had additional shifts, they could confiscate even more. we traveled by boat to the coast guard cutter 7 miles off the coast of san diego. on board we found dozens of
7:37 am
pallets piled high with 50,000 pounds of cocaine. the coast guard crew spent three months tracking down boats off the coast of central and south america, including this makeshift submarine. the boarding team pried open the hatch and found $200 million of cocaine inside. >> the more resources we have, the more we can stop, absolutely. >> reporter: she's the captain of the coast guard cutter. what is it like when you get the intel and then you get eyes on one of those sub memersiblessub? >> it's thrilling. it's kind of like everything coming together. it feels great. >> reporter: this video from the coast guard shows the cramped quarters inside a drug sub. every space is packed with as much cocaine as possible. this is what three quarters of a billion dollars worth of cocaine looks like. and that's just wholesale value. on the street it's worth a lot more. it's been a record year for the coast guard. working with the military and u.s. customs, they've seized
7:38 am
more cocaine in the pacific than the last three years combined. commandant paul zunkuft says the reason it's smuggled is simple economics. >> when you look at the business case of what it takes to produce one kilo of cocaine, about $2,000 in colombia, that same kilo sells for $25,000 here in the united states. >> reporter: with the smugglers caught, the coast guard says they rarely put up a fight. so far they've arrested nearly 700 of them. now, most of the smugglers will be prosecuted right here in the u.s. as for the cocaine, some of it will be kept for evidence. the rest will be incinerated at a secret location. now, it is a tremendous amount of cocaine. but the coast guard estimates at this point it's only catching about a third of what's actually out there. >> that's a really big catch. thank you very much, carter.

nice pass. safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking, you may bruise more easily and it m take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. you know xarelto® is the #1 prescribed blood thinner in its class. that's a big win. it is for me. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto®... ...was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®.
