WASHINGTON - Seven members of an elite US Navy SEAL team, including one who participated in the raid that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, have been reprimanded for disclosing classified material while helping produce a video game, officials said on Thursday.

All seven of the special operations forces who were punished were members of the elite SEAL Team Six, according to CBS News, which first reported the reprimands. CBS said the seven worked for two days this spring and summer as paid consultants on the video game.

A US official, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed the details of the account. A defense official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said other members of the team are still under investigation in connection with the game.

Two senior chief special operators and five chief special operators received a reprimand on Wednesday for their involvement in the production of a video game entitled "Medal of Honor: Warfighter," released by game-maker Electronic Arts Inc, said a Navy official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
