Pair of security scares mar first full day of Rio Olympics

- A Brazilian bomb squad was called into action Saturday as a controlled explosion of an unattended bag was carried out near the finish line of the men's Olympic cycling road race.

With competitors still more than 40 miles away from the finish, reporters heard a loud boom on the press tribune and felt the ground shake. No one was injured, and the event went on unaffected.

Also Saturday, a military bullet pierced the roof of the media tent at the Olympic Equestrian Center.
