Russian Forces Hunting Militants in Lead Up to The Olympics
It's also emerged that Russian authorities are hunting two more 'black widow' suspects -- a notorious type of terrorist that's emerged in Russia's clashes with Chechen separatists. There have been years of unrest linked to an Islamist insurgency in Dagestan and the North Caucasus region, and Islamist militants have vowed to strike at the Games. In a video that surfaced Sunday, two young men believed to have been suicide bombers in last month's back-to-back bombings in the Russian city of Volgograd made an ominous promise. "We've prepared a present for you and all tourists who'll come over," the video says. "If you will hold the Olympics, you'll get a present from us for the Muslim blood that's been spilled."

I am uncertain as to what to say to this. There are so many people who would argue that islam blood has been spilled and this is the only way to get attention to that, while others, such as myself, argue that blood does not justify more blood. I just hope that these threats are empty ones...
@goyo I think its problematic how much people focus on the olympics. As soon as they are over without a hitch people the international community will focus a lot less on everything russia related. Thats why I started my new collection on putin's russia!
i mean russia abuses human rights and specifically muslim people (as far as I know). reaction leads to overreaction i guess
