Russia's counter-terrorism agency has arrested two brothers suspected of assisting the suicide bombers who struck the southern city of Volgograd in late December. The bombings of a train station and trolley bus in Volgograd, which killed 34 people and wounded many more, heightened security fears ahead of the Winter Olympics in Sochi. The National Anti-Terrorism Committee said Thursday in a statement that Magomednabi and Tagir Batirov were detained in Dagestan, a predominantly Muslim republic that has become the center of an Islamic insurgency. At least one Sochi resident is confident that Russian security is prepared for the upcoming Olympics
