According to the New York Post on Jan. 19, a video has been released by two Muslim fanatics warning of more deadly attacks during the Sochi Winter Olympics. The duo have claimed responsibility for the Volgograd bombing in December that killed 34 people.

"That which we do, that which we have done, is only a little example, a little step,’’ one of them says, apparently referring the Volgograd bombings in the city’s train station and on a bus.

Reportedly, the video claims that tourists at the Olympics will be targeted. Russian president Vladimir Putin has stated that massive security measures will be in place at the games.

Just a few days ago, the U.S. State Department issued a travel warning urging vigilance for all Americans attending the Sochi winter games.

Large-scale public events such as the Olympics present an attractive target for terrorists,” the State Department wrote in the travel warning, saying that Russian authorities have said they are taking appropriate security measures.

“There is no indication of a specific threat to U.S. institutions or citizens, but U.S. citizens should be aware of their personal surroundings and follow good security practices,” it said.

The Winter Olympics are set to take place in Sochi, Russia from Feb. 7 to March 14. For a detailed analysis of the security surrounding the Sochi games, please click on the video at the top of this article.
