sochi-2014-300x159The Sochi Olympics still remain under terrorism threats as U.S. authorities keep warning airlines about possible “toothpaste bombs”! The flights to Russia for the Olympic Games from America or other countries are warned about the possible smuggling of toothpaste bombs or other similar cosmetic tube bombs.


The warning says intelligence reports suggest such containers could be used to store the ingredients for a bomb to be assembled aboard an aircraft.


The alert from the US government comes just one day before the Winter Olympics opens in Sochi, Russia.  America’s Department of Homeland Security issued the warning to all US airlines with direct flights to Russia.


The department did not say what had triggered the alert but the warning is believed to have been issued based on new information ahead of the start of the Sochi Olympics.


Latest reports suggest that the Russian Government forces are on high alert to head off possible militant attacks.
