A 4 minute video uploaded by an al Qaeda ally again warns of terror attack at the forthcoming Sochi Olympic Games. The speaker’s face in the video is blurred. He says that Satan is with you, and it would leave you at the wrong time. And the time is coming very soon.
The video was uploaded earlier this month on a website but it gained more interest on Friday, just 2 weeks before the Winter Olympics opening ceremony. The video clip shows a militant mocking how the Russians have become panic-stricken of so-called Muslim extremists. It says that Russian president has caused Russians to think about life seriously, and it is something that could end at a sudden moment, like on a trolley bus, or along Volga River.
The Winter Games would take place in Sochi, which is several hundred miles away from North Caucasus area, where the militants are engaging in a campaign against the Russian president. Their main concern is to humiliate Putin during his most prominent time on the international stage.
Russian forces have swept through Caucasus in the past few days. All the hotels in Sochi have been asked to be on the scout for so-called black widow female terrorists who might be plotting a series of attacks during the Winter Olympics.
According to reports, Putin is spending $50 billion for the games, and he has vowed that the athletes would be safe. A ring of steel, watched over by around forty thousand Russian security forces, would protect a fifteen hundred square mile region surrounding Olympic venues.
