WASHINGTON (AP) — The FBI and Department of Homeland Security are warning law enforcement across the country that Osama bin Laden's death will likely inspire homegrown extremists in the U.S. to try to carry out attacks in the near-term.

The agencies issued a joint intelligence bulletin Monday that said the core al-Qaida group is less likely to carry out attacks against the U.S. in the immediate future, but its spinoff groups around the world could use bin Laden's death as an excuse to speed up plans for attacks. The bulletin was obtained by The Associated Press.

The intelligence community has no information of advanced terror plots in the U.S., but believes U.S. cities, aviation, mass transit and U.S. government facilities will continue to be attractive targets for terrorists, according to the joint bulletin.
