Transit security ramped up after bin Laden death

HOBOKEN - New Jersey commuters are seeing an increased police presence in reaction to the death of Osama bin Laden.

While there's no immediate information indicating a specific threat to New Jersey or New York, counterterrorism experts speculate a retaliation attack for bin Laden's death is inevitable.

"I also see a lot more officers floating around with a lot more security presence here at the Path station, over at the World Trade Center - you can't go more than a few hundred yards without seeing officers or military types," says Paul McDermott, of Hoboken.
