by Wochit 0:49 mins

Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor wanted by the United States for revealing highly classified surveillance programs was believed to have landed in Russia ? possibly as a stopover before traveling elsewhere ? after being allowed to leave Hong Kong. The Hong Kong government said that Edward Snowden, a former contractor for the National Security Agency charged with espionage, was allowed to leave Hong Kong because the U.S. extradition request did not comply with the law. The Guardian newspaper posts classified documents showing intelligence analysts have broad access to intercepted communications but aren't supposed to "target" Americans.
