Russian security forces launched an aggressive "anti-terrorism sweep" today after coming across multiple unexplained deaths and explosive devices in a region near Sochi, where the Winter Olympic Games will be held in a matter of weeks, according to Russian news reports. A car with a body inside exploded as police approached it in Russia's Stavropol Territory, reported Russia's state-owned RIA Novosti, citing the Interior Ministry. In the same area, Russian authorities reportedly discovered a car containing the bodies of three men along with explosive material. The day before, two more bodies were found in the same region.

Big, bright and beautiful: #Sochi2014 medals by the numbers
The 2014 Sochi Olympic gold medals are 10mm thick, 100mm wide and weigh in at a hefty 531 grams, or 1.17 pounds apiece. If the medals were made of pure gold — the way they were back in 1912 — each one would be worth a not-too-shabby $24,704. But, alas, they are made mostly of silver. What's the actual value of a Sochi gold medal? See our daily blog for the answer.
