Homeless: More Countries Deny Snowden Asylum


flight-plane-snowdenWill anyone give Edward Snowden a home?

The fugitive leaker has requested sanctuary from at least 21 nations, but so far only Venezuela and Bolivia have responded favorably.

India, Brazil, and Poland all rejected him, while Austria, Finland, Ireland, Norway, and Spain said any asylum request had to be made in person.

The president of Ecuador, Snowden’s original choice, said that helping the leaker was a “mistake,” and Snowden rescinded his request from Russia after President Vladimir Putin said Snowden would have to stop leaking U.S. secrets if he wants to stay.

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, and they are reportedly slated to discuss Snowden while at a conference in Brunei. In the meantime, Snowden remains trapped in a Moscow airport. Read more at The New York Times.
