ABC News reported Monday, Dec. 30, 2013, a second suicide bombing in as many days in southern Russia. At least 14 were killed in Monday's deadly Russian bus explosion in the city of Volgograd, following Sunday's suicide bombing of the train station that killed 17 in the same city. Bombing sites are close to Sochi, the city where the upcoming Winter Olympics are to be held. The twin suicide attacks now raise security concerns for the Olympics occurring in less than six weeks, although Russian President Vladimir Putin vows to take special precautions to insure security during the event. According to ABC News, President Obama has offered U.S. assistance to aid the Russian government with security efforts during the Olympics.

Islamic terrorist group, Caucasus Emirate, has taken credit for both attacks. CNN reports Doku Umarov, leader of the Russian Islamic terrorist group, proclaimed last July that he would “unleash 'maximum force' to disrupt the games at Sochi.”

The White House Press Secretary posted a release with a statement by National Security Council (NSC) spokesperson, Caitlin Hayden affirming President Obama's offer of solidarity to the Russian government.

CNN added that Hayden said, “We would welcome the opportunity for closer cooperation for the safety of the athletes, spectators, and other participants.”
