San Francisco Municipal Railway has increased security following President Obama’s announcement Sunday night that Osama bin Laden has been killed, a Muni spokesman said.
More field inspectors will be placed along Muni routes throughout the city, spokesman Paul Rose said.
Muni officials are working with San Francisco police to provide more safety personnel in stations, he said.
The increased security is a precaution, Rose said.
Federal authorities have warned that there is a risk of retaliation against the U.S. for bin Laden’s killing, but no specific threats have been reported.
