Militant Islamist video threatens Sochi Winter Olympics: Queen's University expert

2014-01-20

Queen’s University postdoctoral fellow Adam Molnar (Surveillance Studies Centre) is available to comment on the Islamist militant group Vilayat Dagestan posting a new video warning Russian president Vladimir Putin to expect a “present” at the Sochi Winter Olympics.

The video shows two men posing with assault rifles in front of a banner with Arabic writing. The video also shows what appears to be explosive devices attached to them and one pushing a button that appears to be a trigger.

Please note Mr. Molnar is available for television interviews only by Skype or FaceTime.
