#Sochi : Warnings have been Issued about `How Toothpaste Tubes ‘ could be used to hide Explosives”

#AceWorldNews says Days ahead of the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, the US Department of Homeland Security has warned airlines with direct flights to Russia that explosives hidden in toothpaste tubes could be smuggled on board.

An anonymous law enforcement official told AP the explosives could be assembled in flight or upon arrival in Russia.

The department said in a statement that it “is not aware of a specific threat to the homeland at this time,” and that the department “regularly shares information with domestic and international partners, including those associated with international events such as the Sochi Olympics.”
Delta Airlines is the only US carrier with direct flights to Moscow from the US; Russian airlines Aeroflot and Transaero also have non-stop flights from the US.
