Snowden Said To Leave Airport Within Days

American intelligence leaker Edward Snowden is likely to leave the transit zone in Moscow’s airport, where he’s been holed up for weeks, “in the next few days,” his lawyer said Wednesday in Russia.

Showden applied for temporary asylum in Russia on Tuesday, from the transit zone in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport where he remains.

He “will leave (the airport) in the next few days because some legal papers are still required to be formalized,” Russian attorney Anatoly Kucherena said in Moscow.

“Therefore I think this issue will be resolved within a week and after this the question of granting him temporary asylum will be decided upon.”
