Homeland Security Warns Airlines of Possible Toothpaste Tube Bomb

Air carriers flying to the Winter Olympics in Russia are being warned to look out for toothpaste tubes containing material for a bomb, Bloomberg reports.

The warning comes just days before the start of the Olympics, where officials are on extra alert.

It’s unclear what prompted the warnings, and Homeland Security would only say that it “regularly shares relevant information with domestic and international partners, including those associated with international events such as the Sochi Olympics.”

Officials are worried about terrorists targeting the Olympics in Sochi, a few hundred miles from where terrorists have been battling Russians, Bloomberg wrote.
