Snowden on the Run

Hong Kong announced that it had allowed the departure from its territory of Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor "who has acknowledged disclosing classified documents about United States government surveillance of Internet and telephone communications around the world," the New York Times reports.

"Mr. Snowden's final destination was unclear, but there were signs that it might be beyond Moscow. The Russian foreign ministry said that Mr. Snowden appeared to be making a connection in Moscow to another destination, but did not say where."

The Guardian has the latest updates.
