|The US military has revoked access for two women at the heart of the scandal that led to Friday's resignation of General David Petraeus as CIA director.
Security clearance has been suspended for his ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell.
And Jill Kelley's pass at the Florida air force base where she organised social events has been frozen.
An FBI inquiry into Mrs Kelley's complaints of email harassment revealed that Mrs Broadwell and Gen Petraeus had been having an affair.
Mrs Broadwell, a 40-year-old married mother of two, had apparently sent the anonymous emails to Mrs Kelley warning her to stay away from Gen Petraeus. It is not uncommon for those under investigation to have such clearance suspended, officials say.
