THE BRONX - Residents in Riverdale say that after Osama bin Laden's death, they are worried a neighborhood synagogue may be a target again.

Four synagogues in the area were reportedly the target of a foiled terror plot.

Four men were accused of trying to blow up the Bronx synagogues and shoot down military planes at Stewart Air Base in 2009. Residents say after that scare, they are worried about facing retaliation from other terrorists.

Residents say security at large houses of worship should be increased.
