Edward Snowden to Apply for Asylum in Russia

Edward Snowden is alive and indeed at the Moscow airport. There is now proof as he is right now holding talks with Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International at the airport. A photo on The Guardian shows Edward Snowden with Sarah Harrison from Wikileaks. Apparently his plan is now to apply for temporary asylum in Russia to make sure he is safe.

He still wants to go to Latin America at a later stage, but he says the US and Europe are acting outside the law to prevent him from traveling.

The latest to feel the hit? None other than Apple, and in a region the company has been working hard to increase market share: China. China, via state media, has today declared that Apple's iP ...
