>> there is no credible and specific threat against new york city. >> reporter: the isis propaganda video shows a suicide bomber preparing for an attack and a glimpse of times square. though the video raises concerns, city officials say there is nothing new. >> new york obviously remains one of the top terrorist targets in the world. that video, our review of it, it looks like it has been hastily produced. it is a mishmash of previously released video. >> reporter: an isis fighter says we will destroy you with the permission of allah. it served memories of 9/11, but police commissioner bill bratton says the city is taking all necessary precautions. >> there is, as we have repeated frequently, no city in america that is better prepared to defend and protect against a terrorist attack. >> reporter: new york has been the target of numerous terrorist
plots besides 9/11. a few like an attempt to detonate a bomb in times square five years ago nearly succeeded. and after this latest threat, mayor bill de blasio says new yorkers should not live in fear nor be intimidated. >> we understand it is the goal of terrorists to intimidate and disrupt our democratic society. we will not submit to their wishes. >> reporter: now, the fbi says it will investigate this new threat against new york city. again, while there is no credible or specific threat against the city, security has been beefed up. the city has even deployed a new anti-terrorism squad out of an abundance of caution. anne-marie? >> don champion in new york's times square. thank you so much, don. this morning it's still not clear whether the mastermind of last week's attacks in paris is dead or alive. paris officials say that he was
not taken alive during yesterday's raid, but it's unclear if he actually died in the attack. jonatha jonathan viglyati is in paris. good morning. >> reporter: we're talking about abdelhamid abaaoud. it's still unclear if he was killed in the raids. what we do know according to officials, it could take several more days before dna tests come back. just a day after the violent raid that turned the streets of saint-denis into a war zone, forensics experts are still working to figure out if abdelhamid abaaoud was among two terrorists killed. french s.w.a.t. teams raided this apartment in the paris suburb wednesday where the alleged mastermind of last week's terror attacks was thought to be hiding. law enforcement officials say one suspect was killed as police threw grenades and fired 5,000 rounds during the onslaught. a female suicide bomber also died after detonating an explosive vest. eight others including seven men and a woman were arrested.
but authorities say abaaoud and another fugitive, salah abdeslam, were not among them. president francois hollande is calling on the u.s. to intensify its role in the fight against isis. the topic is expected to be the focus when hollande meets with president obama next week in washington. >> they're not coming to ask for divisions of troops to go invade anyplace. they're going to need help with what's called intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance. >> reporter: so far the airstrikes carried out by french jets and other forces have killed more than two dozen isis militants in raqqah this week. and overnight, raids were carried out in belgium. we are told they were directly connected to one of the three suicide bombers at the stadium on friday. anne-marie, still unclear at this point if there were any additional arrests made. >> jonathan, thank you. well, we'll be talking to new york city police
commissioner bill bratton about this latest isis threat. and that's coming up on "cbs this morning." isis released a photo of a homemade bomb it says brought down the russian airliner in egypt. the photo shows a soda can and what appears to be bomb components. isis says it discovered a way to compromise the security at the egyptian airport where the russian plane took off from. security experts say a bomb as big as a soda can can easily rupture the pressure hull of an airliner. well, today a republican-sponsored bill to increase screening of syrian and iraqi refugees is expected to pass the house. democrats say the legislation would allow -- would, rather, all but shut down the nation's refugee program. president obama has been at odds with republicans over his plan to allow 10,000 syrians to enter the u.s. next year. opposition has snowballed following the paris attacks. >> it's not that we don't want to accept people coming into this country, it's that we
cannot because we cannot conduct effective, reliable background checks. and if you admitted 10,000 people and 9,999 of them are good people and one of them is an isis killer, you have a problem. >> a new poll shows more than half of all americans want the u.s. to stop admitting syrian refugees. and a syrian family that waited three years to resettle in indiana has been turned away. they apparently are the first syrians to be redirected after 26 governors said their states would refuse to accept the refugees because of security concerns. the family of three has been welcomed in connecticut. and six syrian nationals traveling on false passports are being held in honduras. honduran officials say five were trying to reach the united states. they were detained tuesday when they arrived from costa rica. police say that there are no signs that they had ties to last week's attacks in paris. hillary clinton's campaign is distancing itself from a virginia mayor who made
