• US warns visitors to Sochi to stay vigilant


    WASHINGTON: The United States updated its travel alert for the Sochi Winter Olympics, and specifically warned American gays about stringent new anti-gay laws. Renewing appeals to all US citizens to “remain vigilant,” the State Department said Americans “should remain attentive regarding their personal security at all times.” It recalls recent attacks in Russia, including three suicide bombings between October and December in the city of Volgograd that had already prompted a warning from the State Department for all travelers to be careful.
