Police in Sochi have launched an urgent search for a possible female suicide bomber who may have already made it past the ring of security set up for the Olympic Games.
Well, that ain't good, right? But the question is, does she sound villainous enough? The answer is that this is Russia, so yes.
The woman is identified as Ruzanna Ibragimova, using the nickname Salima, the widow of a militant reportedly killed in a shoot-out with police last year in Dagestan. Ibragimova is described as having a 10 centimeter scar across the left cheek, a pronounced limp, and a stiff left arm that doesn't bend at the elbow.
You couldn't script an episode of 24 better. Her nickname is the Black Widow. I mean, really? But does it also sound like more and more potential bombers could slip into the city? The answer again, is yes.
Security experts said it was troubling that she may have been able to get to Sochi despite the so-called “ring of steel” of security forces that President Vladimir Putin has said will make the Olympics safe from terrorists.
So if you are in Sochi, be on the lookout for this lady. And if you aren't, thank the Lord.
