Sochi Security Warning
Terror in a tube. The Department of Homeland Security is out with a warning about flights headed to Russia.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington DC:
Toothpaste tubes could be all terrorists need to smuggle explosives onto Russia-bound flights. The Department of Homeland Security passing along that warning to airlines, some originating in the U.S. The bulletin indicates explosive devices could be assembled in flight, or once would-be-terrorists arrive in Russia for the games. DHS says it is not aware of any specific threat to the homeland, but regularly shares information with international partners. Delta Airlines is the only U.S. carrier with direct flights from the U.S. to Moscow. Russian airlines also operate non-stop flights.
In Washington, Jared Halpern, FOX News Radio.

Anyone attending that ceremony or any Olympic event will have to go through airport-style security checks and also switch on their cell phone, to prove it’s just a normal phone.
The Russian government saying today that it guarantees these Games will be safe.
The competition has already started– with slope-style snowboarding making its Olympic debut. Seven Americans have made it through to the next round already, But Shaun White has decided to sit this event out.
