Southland authorities were mum Monday morning about plans to protect potential terror targets after the news broke that Osama bin Laden had been killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan

But several leaders, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and President Barack Obama, who announced in Washington Sunday night that bin Laden had been killed, urged vigilance.

"This announcement tonight by President Obama that Osama bin Laden has been killed is indeed historic, but we must continue to be vigilant and remain on guard against those that still seek to harm us," Villaraigosa said in a statement.
