Terrorist Video Threatens Sochi Winter Olympics
A claim of responsibility that emerged Sunday for last month’s back-to-back bombings in the Russian city of Volgograd also threatens “a present” for visitors to the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.
In a video posted on a well-known Jihadi forum website Sunday, two young men believed to have been suicide bombers speak of the Volgograd attacks and also make an ominous promise.
“We’ve prepared a present for you and all tourists who’ll come over. If you will hold the Olympics, you’ll get a present from us for the Muslim blood that’s been spilled,” the video says.
In the video, the men are dressed in black and standing in front of a black banner with religious verse that is typically associated with al Qaeda-linked extremists.
