Snowden Reached Out To Russia While He Was In Hong Kong
MOSCOW (AP) - A respected Russian newspaper says National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden spent two days in the Russian Consulate in Hong Kong directly before leaving on an abortive attempt to reach asylum in Latin America.
Snowden in June flew to Moscow, intending to change to a Cuba-bound flight. He reportedly then aimed to go on to Bolivia and seek asylum. But he did not board the flight to Havana and remained in limbo until being granted asylum in Russia on Aug. 1.
The newspaper Kommersant on Monday quoted unidentified government sources as saying that the American appeared at the Russian Consulate on his own initiative two days before the flight, showed his ticket and asked for unspecified help.
The Russian Foreign Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
