Herald Sun reports suicide bombings that have killed at least 33 people have confirmed the Winter Olympics in Sochi as a terrorist target. Some Australian security experts are saying if you havent booked, dont go.
It is a potentially terrifying start to the new year and a grim reminder that while the rest of us make resolutions to change our lives for the better, terrorists continue their attacks with deadly determination, comments Herald Sun.
A Chechen rebel leader warned in July that the Sochi games were being held “on the bones of our ancestors’’.
Herald sun explains that the dilemma for Australian Olympic authorities after the explosions in the city of Volgograd is whether it is safe for athletes to compete in spite of an unprecedented show of force by Russian President Vladimir Putin who has rushed troops to the area.
