Now that Osama bin Laden is dead, U.S. intelligence agents are combing through records seized from his compound for clues as to the whereabouts of his second in command, CBS News reported Monday.

Osama bin Laden, terrorism, cluesThe intelligence community hopes the information found in the home where bin Laden was killed Sunday can lead them to Ayman al-Zawahiri and other senior al-Qaida operatives, an intelligence source told the network.

The United States also wants to know about any terror plots al-Qaida may have in the works.

"They got bin Laden but not the keys to the kingdom," the source said.

U.S. officials are looking for any information on a potential al-Qaida attack being plotted in Pakistan, although they have no specific information on any security threat, the source said.
