Bin Laden death: Security fears for US Navy Seal team

The US is to tighten security around the elite military unit that killed Osama Bin Laden, US Defence Secretary Robert Gates has said.....Mr Gates revealed that the US Navy Seal team had expressed concerns over their safety and that of their families.

Al-Qaeda has vowed to avenge the death of its leader in the helicopter-borne raid on his compound in Abbottabad, northern Pakistan....Mr Gates said threats against US forces had increased since Bin Laden's death.

The defence secretary, addressing US marines at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, said he had met the Seal team last week and they raised the issue of their security "and particularly with respect to their families".
