Obama, Putin discuss security in Sochi; US offering support
Americans advised to take caution if traveling to Olympics.
As the Sochi Olympics approach and concerns about security rise, presidents Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin discussed the issues at hand Tuesday, according to a release from the White House.
According to Reuters, few details were disclosed.
Still, the world leaders discussed how to keep the games safe, and Obama apparently offered full American support. In fact, Bloomberg reported Tuesday that the U.S. has offered gear to help detect homemade bombs, though it isn't clear how receptive Russia will be to the equipment.
Regardless, the U.S. military has reportedly been researching possible evcuation plans should they be needed, and the State Department has warned Americans headed to Sochi about the possibility of a terror attack.
On Monday it was reported that Russian officials were in search of a possible suicide bomber that had breached security.
