Up to 40 radicalized US citizens who have fought alongside terrorists of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) have already returned to the United States and could pose a real terrorist threat, says Rep. Tim Bishop (D-N.Y.).

Of the hundred or so Americans who have traveled to the Middle East to join the Islamic State's ranks, some 40 have returned and are currently being surveilled by the FBI, Bishop said in a recent speech.

“It is not yet a threat to the homeland, but there is a concern that it could metastasize in such a way that it could become a threat,” he warned.

The lawmaker also expressed concert that jihadist fighters could clandestinely enter the United States through the porous southern border.

However, US officials with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and other security agencies have said that while the southern border poses a real risk, they are more concerned about lone wolf attacks in which an isolated radicalized individual sympathizing with IS carries out a solo terror attack.

“There have been Twitter, social media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,” Francis Taylor, under secretary for intelligence and analysis at the DHS, told senators during a recenthearing.

Other US officials have also discussed the possibility of Islamic State sympathizers carrying out an attack on the United States.

“We remain mindful of the possibility that an ISIL-sympathizer—perhaps motivated by online propaganda—could conduct a limited, self-directed attack here at home with no warning,” Matthew Olsen, director of the US National Counterterrorism Center, said in a speech earlier this month.

He went on to say: “We have seen ISIL use a range of media to tout its military capabilities, executions of captured soldiers, and consecutive battlefield victories. More recently, the group’s supporters have sustained this momentum on social media by encouraging attacks in the US and against US interests in retaliation for our airstrikes. ISIL has used this propaganda campaign to draw foreign fighters to the group, including many from Western countries.”

Meanwhile, many are concerned about a Minnesota immigrant community, where a number of young men fighting on the side of Islamic State militants is growing.

They are believed to be part of a larger investigation by the FBI’s field office in Minneapolis. Supervisory Special Agent E.K. Wilson said the issue is a significant concern and of top priority for his agency. Wilson believes the internet is being used as a major recruiting tool to attract young men to fight.

“It has made the radicalization process change over time,” according to Wilson.“It has created more opportunities for self-radicalization. There’s a lot of material on the internet.”

The civil war in Syria, now in its fourth year, has become a magnet for radicalized Westerners. Most of the Americans who have traveled to the country to fight alongside Islamic State terrorists are still there.

Eight members of Ebola prevention team killed in Guinea

Three journalists were among those killed

PRETORIA, September 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Eight members of an Ebola prevention team have been killed in Guinea, the government said on Thursday.

The attack occurred earlier this week, presumably on Tuesday. Three journalists were among those killed, it said.

The bodies were found in a small village not far from the city of Nzerekore in the south-east of the country.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), more than 2,600 people have died from Ebola in West Africa and over 5,000 have been infected. Most of the deaths occurred in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) said on September 8 that several thousand more people would get infected with Ebola in Liberia within the next three weeks.

Liberia is the hardest-hit country in West Africa since the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) in Guinea in December 2013.

“Many thousands of new cases are expected in Liberia over the coming 3 weeks,” WHO said, adding that the case-fatality rate, at 58%, was also among the highest.

WHO named six countries that are facing the risk of the EVD spread: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea-Bissau, Mali, and Senegal. The organisation and its partners are now working with countries to ensure that full Ebola surveillance, preparedness and response plans are in place in these countries, it said.

WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said last week that development partners needed to prepare for an “exponential increase” in Ebola cases in countries currently experiencing intense virus transmission.

On August 8, Chan declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.

The Ebola virus disease (formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever) was first reported in 1976 in Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo) and got its name from the river near which the first outbreak occurred.

It is a severe, often fatal illness, with a case fatality rate of up to 90% It is one of the world’s most virulent diseases. The infection is transmitted by direct contact with the blood, body fluids and tissues of infected animals or people. Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care.

The United Nations has launched a system-wide coordination initiative to assist the effected West African countries in stopping the spread of the virus.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday announced the establishment of a special mission to fight the epidemic of the Ebola virus disease (EVD) and its future outbreaks.

Speaking at a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, Ban said the mission would start working before the end of the month.
