Transcript for American Athletes Arrive in Sochi Amid Terror Fears
in sochi seven days to go until the olympic games and they're finding out -- they're sending out pictures of themselves as they start to work out. All this as serious terror threats are still swirling over olympic security. ABC's Brian Ross is here with the latest. A high stakes drama will play out over the next seven days as the Russian security services deploy every technique, every surveillance trick in the book to detect any possible terrorists who have somehow made it into sochi and what can be seen as only a small part of what's going on, the unseen, the Russian fsb, new version of the kgb has flooded they with undercover intelligence officer, spies walking the streets riding trains and buses of the olympic area and perhaps more important an electronic eavesdropping operation that will collect every phone call, text or anything that moves electronically, robin. Do U.S. Officials think it's enough? They do believe the rugs having kraed down, that the heavy security may well protect sochi but worry more about outside of sochi. Huge Numbers of police and bomb-sniffing dogs from Moscow have been sent to sochi leaving Moscow more vulnerable. The eyes of the world will be on Russia and sochi as president Putin says and not just to watch the games. You're right about that, Brian. Thank you very much.
