KUALA LUMPUR: Police will step up security in various important locations in the country following the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in a pre-dawn operation in Pakistan on Monday.
Federal police assistant director of management (Public Relations) ACP Ramli Mohamed Yoosuf said this was to ensure residents of Malaysia could live freely without worries of threats from any quarters.
"Police have also heightened security measures in sensitive areas...if an area needs more security, it will be done," he told Bernama when contacted here Monday.
He said this when asked to comment on a report that the United States government had put all its embassies on alert following Osama's death.
US President Barack Obama announced Sunday (it was still Sunday in the US when the raid took place) that Osama bin Laden was killed in a firefight with US-led forces at a hideout outside Islamabad earlier Sunday and that his body was in US custody. - Bernama

Osama May Be Dead...
Osama may be dead so good luck to the US in finding a new bogeyman. Nonetheless like when 911 happened it would be us poor citizens that will face heightened security hysteria, wonder why people want to make us a target in the first place.
