Sochi Security Relaxing

SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Sochi hotel guests are walking, unchecked, past unused metal detectors. Security guards are no longer poking around at the pockets and ankles of every single person entering Olympic facilities. Tangerines and bottles of Coke are making it through security barriers that banned them two weeks ago.

For all the warnings that security in Sochi would be invasive and aggressive, it’s appearing more uneven, and in places almost relaxed.

No attacks have been reported since the Olympics started Feb. 7, and the world’s attention has turned to the skiing and skating instead of security measures.

But risks remain. Islamic militants stage regular attacks elsewhere in the Caucasus Mountains region. Russia has deployed tens of thousands of forces across the Sochi region and U.S. authorities sent two warships to the Black Sea.
