Washington, D.C. -

Members of Congress say they're concerned about the safety of Americans at next month's Olympics in Russia.

They say Moscow needs to cooperate more on security. Congressman Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, says, "We don't seem to be getting all of the information we need to protect our athletes in the games."

The Islamic militant group, Vilayat Dagestan, located in Russia has posted a video online threatening to strike the Winter Games.  Two Russian-speaking men warned President Vladimir Putin and the tourists who plan to attend the games that they'll receive what the men describe as "a present."
