US warships off to Black Sea before Olympics begin

Published: 02.01.14, 07:42 / Israel News

US officials say the first of two American warships heading into the Black Sea in advance of the Olympic Games has sailed from Italy. In another sign of US efforts to protect Americans at the Winter Games, the FBI says at least two dozen agents are going to Sochi, Russia.

 

Islamic militants have threatened to derail the Winter Games, which run from February 7-23. The USS Mount Whitney got underway Friday from Gaeta, Italy, and the Navy frigate USS Taylor is expected to leave from Naples, Italy, on Saturday. (AP)
