MOSCOW — A senior Russian official revealed on Monday the thwarting of a possible attack before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, saying female suicide bombers had planned to smuggle explosives onto an aircraft in hand cream.
Deputy Foreign Minister Oleg Syromolotov, who has responsibility for counter-terrorism, said the suspected attackers were detained in Austria and France.

"The female suicide bombers who were in France had plans showing where they were supposed to put the explosives," Russian news agencies quoted him saying during an appearance before the upper house of Russia’s parliament. "Their explosives were in hand cream."
