The U.S. State Department has warned Americans of the potential for terrorism at the Sochi Olympics, but said it was not aware of any specific threat to U.S. citizens.

In a "travel warning," the department urged Americans to be vigilant about personal security at the February 7 to March 14 Olympic Games, citing the possibility of petty crime, inadequate medical care, and hotel shortages.
