The Christian Post reported, "The Caucasus-based militant group Vilayat Dagestan posted a video on Sunday threatening terrorist attacks at the upcoming Winter Olympic Games."
Russian authorities are searching for Ruzana Ibragimova, the widow of an Islamic militant killed last year. Authorities claim Ibragimova is involved in a terror plot targeting the Sochi 2014 Olympics.
According to CBS News, Olympic committee official Dmitry Chernyshenko "said about 213,000 spectators are expected at the games, with about 75 percent likely to be Russians."
This isn't the first time terrorists have allegedly targeted the Olympics. In 1972 terrorists killed 11 people in the Israeli Olympic team. The story of this massacre is told in the documentary One Day in September.
