SOCHI, Russia (AP) The IOC is urging Russian Olympic organizers to move quickly to resolve the issue of accommodations that are not ready for accredited media personnel in the mountains outside Sochi.

According to the Sochi organizing committee, only six of the nine media hotels in the mountain area are fully operational.

Some media have arrived and found they had no place to stay, and thousands of journalists are expected to arrive Monday.

The matter was being examined Sunday at a meeting of the International Olympic Committee executive board.

IOC President Thomas Bach says ''there are still some issues to be solved as always just before the games.''

He says ''we are in contact with the organizing committee and we hope that the situation will be solved in the next couple of days.''
