Washington - The US State Department on Sunday issued a global travel alert to all US citizens following the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden saying there could be an outbreak of anti-American violence.

"The US Department of State alerts US citizens traveling and residing abroad to the enhanced potential for anti-American violence given recent counter-terrorism activity in Pakistan," it said in a statement.

"Given the uncertainty and volatility of the current situation, US citizens in areas where recent events could cause anti-American violence are strongly urged to limit their travel outside of their homes and hotels and avoid mass gatherings and demonstrations."
