Mitt Romney: Sochi Olympics will be safe

NEW YORK (AP) — Former presidential U.S. candidate Mitt Romney believes the 2014 Sochi Olympics should be safe, despite threats of terrorism in Russia.

Romney headed up the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and says security appears to be far more intense for the Sochi games.

He says that there's "no such thing as 100 percent security anywhere in the world," but that there will be "very adequate security" at Sochi.

He says the presence of security only goes so far, and that intelligence gathering is what helps protect events.

Romney made the comments on the red carpet for the NFL Honors, where he praised the event that includes seven AP sports awards.
