New York, May 27: The US government has put out a bulletin warning that terrorists might attack the military to express their fury over the killing of Osama bin Laden in his Abbottabad compound in Pakistan.
“We assess that the 2 May 2011 U.S. military operation resulting in the death of bin Laden may prompt terrorist-particularly home-grown violent extremists acting alone or in concert with others- to try to avenge his death by attacking military targets in the United States,” CBS News quoted the bulletin by the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the Defense Intelligence Agency, as saying.
The bulletin also warned that terrorists might even consider targeting ‘off-base uniformed U.S. military personnel.’
Meanwhile, the Pakistani Taliban launched a series of deadly revenge attacks, killing over 130 security men, in that country, to take revenge for bin Laden’s death.
They had also claimed responsibility for the raid on the major naval air station in Karachi earlier this month. (ANI)
