(NECN) - Russian officials are searching for as many as four female suicide bombers who they say plan to carry out attacks during the Olympic Games.
     
NBC News reports one of the women, known as the “Black Widow,” may have entered the Sochi area two weeks ago and is hiding out, waiting for an opportunity to carry out an attack.
