NEWARK - Law enforcement agencies in New Jersey and across the country are increasing their security measures, especially at heavily traveled transit locations, following the death of Osama bin Laden.

The concern is that the killing of bin Laden may prompt a revenge attack. News 12 New Jersey spoke to travelers today at Newark Liberty International Airport who said they aren't worried.

Finn Jorgensen, who was headed home to Sweden, said he was more concerned about traveling taking more time with heightened security.

A Port Authority spokesperson says the increased security measures aren't in response to any current threat, but out of an abundance of caution.

Meanwhile, Donna, from Minnesota, who was about to fly back home, says bin Laden's death does not make her feel any more or less safe.
