The Hong Kong government said it allowed Edward Snowden to leave because the US hadn’t supplied enough information to fulfill its request to arrest him. The New York Times reported that Snowden, who leaked confidential information about US surveillance techniques, was bound for Moscow, and that WikiLeaks claimed to be supporting him. It was unclear whether Moscow was ultimately just a stopping point to another destination. Reuters reports that Snowden plans to fly from Moscow to Cuba on Monday, and then hopes to go to Venezuela from there.
