With the 2014 Winter Olympic Games less than a month away, Russian authorities are investigating another potential act of terrorism near Sochi.

According to investigators, four cars had been rigged with explosives, but only one of those went off. All six of the victims had apparently been shot and then placed in the abandoned vehicles prior to the explosion. (Via Al Jazeera)
