Videos - Edward Snowden now in Moscow: Ecuador considering asylum request
KMC » 10am - Jun 24, 2013
Ecuador has said it has received a request for political asylum from Edward Snowden, the fugitive US intelligence contractor who is currently in Russian capital Moscow, adding that the application is still being "analysed" with no decisions taken yet. Snowden, who is believed to be in the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport as he does not have a Russian visa, is expected to fly to Ecuador via Cuba provided he gets a positive reply to his asylum request. He has revealed secret documents on US Internet and phone surveillance activities. Snowden recently flew from Hong Kong to Moscow on Sunday and was reported to have met the Ecuadorean ambassador in the Russian capital after applying for asylum.
