WASHINGTON - A book about the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden by a former Navy SEAL who participated in the mission contains classified information and the Pentagon is reviewing legal options, a Defense Department spokesman said on Tuesday.

But the book's co-author denied the book contained any information which would jeopardize the safety or future missions of Navy special forces personnel.

The book, "No Easy Day," chronicles last year's stealth operation in which members of US Navy SEAL Team Six swooped by helicopter into the al-Qaida leader's house in Pakistan and killed him, ending an intense decade-long manhunt which began with the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on New York and Washington D.C.

The successful operation gave President Barack Obama a national security victory that he is touting in his bid for re-election against Republican rival Mitt Romney.
