Edward Snowden Still Stuck in Moscow in Airport

Ad Feedback

The National Security Agency contractor behind the massive U.S. surveillance leak is still stuck in Russia Wednesday after applying for temporary asylum.
    
Earlier reports suggested that NSA leaker Edward Snowden had been given documents that would have allowed him to leave the transit lounge of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.
    
Snowden applied for temporary asylum in Russia last week, but his lawyer, Antatoly Kucherena, says more paper work needs to be done on his application before he can leave.

"The situation is not standard for Russia," he said. "There is lots of bureaucracy to get through, the documents are still being looked over."
    
He's not ruled out seeking Russian citizenship.
    
Snowden is wanted in the United States for leaking highly classified information to reporters about U.S. national intelligence operations.
