U.S. Lawmakers Say Sochi Olympics Aren't Safe

Several members of congress say they're concerned about security surrounding next month's winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
CNN -- Several members of congress say they're concerned about security surrounding next month's winter olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Senator Angus King who is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee told CNN he wouldn't go to the games himself and he doesn't think he would send his family either.

The concerns stem from a pair of December bombings in the city of Volgograd that killed more than 30 people.

Just Sunday, a video of two young men claiming responsibility for the attacks emerged on a well-known online jihadi forum.

The men promise a "present" for visitors to the winter games.

Russia has beefed up security surrounding the event and president Vladimir putin has pledged that visitors will be kept safe.
