NEW YORK (AP) - New books on Osama bin Laden and the Navy SEAL unit that killed him are coming soon.

Random House says it hopes to have a collection of essays out quickly on the al-Qaida terrorist leader, who was killed in a helicopter raid and gunfight on Monday in Pakistan. The Free Press says it’s planning an e-book “as fast as possible” based on material from Peter Bergen’s “The Longest War: The Enduring Conflict between America and Al-Qaeda.”

Bin Laden was killed by a unit called Navy SEAL Team Six, ending a nearly 10-year hunt for the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

St. Martin’s Press is moving up publication of “SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper,” by Howard E. Wasdin and Stephen Templin. The book was scheduled to come out May 24 but likely will be released within a week.
