The greatest threat to security at the Games is international terrorism, the government's latest "Safety and Security Strategy" report said.

But here's the good thing out of this whole mess: AEP says it was a test that security passed. Putnam County Sheriff Stan Farley says, "Someone tried to come on the property." They ...

The security guard, Kiryl Shremko, was laid to rest in the Afula cemetery at 5:00 PM Sunday. His funeral had been delayed while the attempt to locate his family in Russia was underway. His father works near the Russian-Japanese border, a fact which made finding him a difficult task. Locating his mother also proved challenging as she was living deep in the mountains...
