Iraq expects reprisals for bin Laden killing

BAGHDAD - Iraq's army and police went on high alert on Monday for possible revenge attacks in one of al Qaida's major battlegrounds after US forces killed Osama bin Laden in a raid on his Pakistan hideout.

Oil infrastructure, power stations and bridges could be targets of militant attacks, security sources said, to prove bin Laden's death has not disrupted operations in Iraq, still an important arena for the Islamist group eight years after the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
