Snowden Leaves Airport

August 2, 2013 by  

Snowden Leaves Airport, US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden has left the Moscow airport where he had been staying since June after being granted temporary asylum.

Mr Snowden’s lawyer said he had left after receiving the papers he needed to enter Russian territory from Sheremetyevo Airport’s transit zone.

The US has charged Mr Snowden with leaking details of its electronic surveillance programmes.

Russia’s decision is likely to further strain its ties with the US.

For someone willing to disclose the dirty secrets of others, Edward Snowden is infuriatingly keen on keeping private.

That, at least, is a view of journalists, dozens of whom were patrolling the inside of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport trying to get a glimpse of this famous fugitive.

Each hint of Snowden’s possible appearance brought about a sea of cameras and a forest of microphone holders. Passions ran high, some cameras were trampled upon.

All in vain. Edward Snowden slipped away in a taxi, an unremarkable grey sedan.
