Rus­sian agents foil games ter­ror bid

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

RUS­SIAN agents have foiled ter­ror at­tack plans on the Black Sea re­sort of Sochi, host of the 2014 Win­ter Games, and seized a large amount of weapons and am­mu­ni­tion, au­thor­i­ties say. The FSB se­cret ser­vice agency dis­cov­ered ten caches of arms and am­mu­ni­tion on May 4 and May 5 in Ge­or­gia’s break­away repub­lic of Abk­hazia. The re­gion is very close to Sochi. The arms seized in­cluded por­ta­ble sur­face-to-air mis­siles, gre­nade launch­ers, flame throw­ers, grenades, ri­fles and ex­plo­sives in­clud­ingtnt.
