No Security Changes At Bay Area Airports After Osama’s Death
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Bay Area airports were operating normally Monday, the day after Osama bin Laden’s death was announced.
Security measures hadn’t changed at San Francisco International Airport, airport spokesman Mike McCarron said.
The airport is in constant contact with the Transportation Security Administration and the San Francisco Police Department, McCarron said.

“We will continue to remain vigilant,” she said. “We are asking traveling public to assist us.”
