Winter Olympics Terrorist Attack
Russian authorities are currently on the lookout for four “black widow” suicide bombers who could be used as pawns in a terrorist attack during the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

Authorities believe one suspect, Ruzanna (Salima) Ibragimova, may have slipped through the security in Sochi.

On Sunday, a terrorist group that allegedly killed 34 people in Volgograd’s suicide bombing posted a video to a jihadi forum warning an attack during the Olympics.

“We’ll have a surprise package for you,” said the man. “And those tourists that will come to you, for them, too, we have a surprise.”

Russian officials claim the area safe but, if there’s a security breach this could be detrimental for the opening on Feb. 6.

“We have adequate needs available to us through the federal security service, the interior ministry, armed forces units that will be involved in providing security on the water and in the air,” he told reporters through an interpreter,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Others beg to differ:

“The fact that one individual either was able to stay in the area before the ring of steel went up or get through it really raises questions about the strength of the Russia security apparatus,” Christopher Swift, a Georgetown University who has studied extremist groups in the North Caucasus, told ABC News.

United States military and intelligence officials have planned an evacuation procedure for American athletes and visitors in Sochi, just in case there is a terrorist attack, the Guardian reported.
