Russia's secret service said Thursday it had foiled terror attack plans in the Black Sea resort of Sochi ahead of the 2014 Winter Games.

The ammunition was found on May 4 and May 5 in Georgia's breakaway republic of Abkhazia, a region that has declared independence and has strong links with Russia. The FSB said it suspects the attacks were being masterminded by Doku Umarov, a Chechen rebel leader, whom it claims has close ties to Georgia's secret service. Umarov had claimed responsibility for the 2011 deadly bombing in a Moscow airport that killed 35 people.
