It tells that how the Russian Police guard Sochi -- a city in Russia which is supposed to hold the Winter Olympics in 2014.
40,000 Russian police and security forces will be guarding the events. International officials are concerned about possible terrorism. Islamic militants have threatened to attack the games. And Russian police have handed out fliers of a woman they say may now be in Sochi and may be planning an attack.
I have two questions:
- From the dictionary, hand out means to give something to each person in a group, but this interpretation seems not work in the sentence. So what does the phrase hand out mean here?
- What's the meaning of fliers of a woman? Fliers is in the plural, but a woman is singular. I cannot understand the combination. And I also cannot understand what does the expression refer to. Can anyone give a proper explanation? Thanks.
