Putin lights Olympic flame for Sochi in Red Square


Russian President Vladimir Putin ceremoniously lit the Olympic flame in Red Square on Oct. 6, but the relay to Sochi for the Winter Games got off to a rocky start when one of the torches went out.

The flame went out when a torch bearer ran through a passageway heading into the Kremlin. A man standing along the route pulled out a lighter and the flame leaped back to life.

The flame will travel from the western exclave of Kaliningrad to the easternmost point across the Bering Strait from Alaska, before reaching Sochi for the Feb. 7 opening ceremony. (AP)
