US intelligence operatives are hoping to find valuable data on al-Qaida leaders and terror plots in the cache of computer equipment and data found in the compound where Osama bin Laden was killed on Sunday, CNN quoted US officials as saying on Tuesday.

White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said soldiers took "whatever material we thought was appropriate and what was needed" during the raid on the compound.

"We are trying to determine exactly the worth of whatever information we might have been able to pick up," Brennan said on Monday.
