Investigators say traces of an explosive called hexogen have been found at the site of one of the crashes, in Russia's Rostov region. Aviation officials say hexogen, a white powder, probably wouldn't have shown up on the airport's metal detectors if it was being carried on someone's body. Airport security here might have needed to frisk the women to find it--and that rarely happens.

For the first time since 1988, the gold medal in men's basketball will not go to the United States. That's after the Americans lost in the semifinals to Argentina 89-to-81. Now team U-S-A needs to concentrate on the bronze medal game. The women's U-S basketball team will compete for the gold medal against Australia after the Americans stopped Russia 66-to-62 in the semifinals. Team U-S-A is seeking a third straight gold medal.
