Volgograd, Russia - Olympic Torch arrives in Volgograd amid tensions
Volgograd is the city where two suicide bombings killed dozens of residents several weeks ago.
Tensions are high about the Olympic games which are coming to nearby Sochi.
New video released by an Islamist militant group appears to show the two terrorists allegedly responsible for the attacks. The men in the video promised a "surprise package" for those who attend the Olympics.
Russian officials then released their own video showing Russian forces raiding a suspected stronghold.
Russian President Putin insists his country is doing everything they can to prevent violence. "The job of the Olympics host is to ensure security of the participants in the Olympicsand visitors. We will do whatever it takes."
But U.S. officials do not appear to be reassured.
