DC Metro raising security after bin Laden's death

Washington's Metro transit system is stepping up security as a precaution following the death of terrorist leader Osama bin Laden.

Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says Metro Transit Police are working with area law enforcement partners to increase security in the system. She says customers are likely to see more uniformed officers in the system beginning Monday.

Farbstein says there are other security measures in place that are designed to be invisible to the public.

Bin Laden was killed by U.S. military forces in a raid early Monday on his custom-built hideout in Pakistan.
