US Air Force base in Ohio steps up security

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio military base is ramping up security following the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton isn't saying if its new protection measures are related to the death of the terrorist leader.

Also, base spokesman Derek Kaufman says in a news release issued Monday that the steps being taken do not automatically mean any specific threat has been identified.

The Dayton Daily News reports additional screening at the base gates will mean delays for visitors.
