Putin: Snowden Won’t Be Extradited

NSA leaker Edward Snowden is still inside the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tuesday.
Putin’s remarks were the first official word on the fugitive’s whereabouts in more than two days.

Putin said the former self-identified leaker of classified data arrived as a transit passenger and had made no arrangements with Russia over his future.

The comments, made at a news conference in Finland, appeared to confirm speculation that Snowden is seeking permission to fly to another country – most likely Ecuador, to which he has already applied for political asylum.
