• Jia Lynn Yang, Kathy Lally, Washington Post
HONG KONG--Edward Snowden, the former contractor who leaked top-secret documents about about U.S. surveillance programs, has left Hong Kong “on his own accord for a third country,” the government here said Sunday afternoon.

Snowden is heading to Moscow, according to a report from the South China Morning Post. The newspaper reported that he boarded commercial flight Aeroflot SU213 from Chep Lap Kok airport at 11:04am. He is due to arrive at Moscow’s Shermetyevo International Airport at 5:15pm.

Based on earlier statements, his final destination could be Ecuador or Iceland.

The Hong Kong government said that documents from the U.S. government requesting a warrant for his arrest “did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law.” And so it has asked the United States to provide “additional information.”
