Russia hunts as many as 4 ‘black widows’ before Olympics

Russian security services may be looking for as many as four ‘black widows’ dispatched to carry out terrorist attacks related to the Winter Olympics, including at least one woman believed to be in or near the Olympic city of Sochi, US and Russian sources told NBC News on Monday.

Wanted posters that have gone up in Sochi, where the games open Feb. 7, describe at least one suspected terrorist — Ruzan Ibragimova, also known as Ruzana, the 23-year-old widow of an Islamic militant killed by Russian security forces last year.
