Olympic committee: No worries about terror threat

Analysis

The Hungarian Olympic Committee (MOB) is not concerned about the recent arrival of terror threats against its delegation prior to the Sochi Winter Olympics in Russia, head of the organization Zsolt Borkai said.

MOB stressed that the received threats were also delivered to several other counties, meaning Hungary was just a recipient of a randomly distributed threat campaign rather than an actual target of a developing plot.

Authorities also added that the alertness or the intensity of communication with their Russian colleagues has not been intensified because of the letter and there was never even a notion that the potential danger would deter the Hungarian team from participating in the Games.
