Edward Snowden: Plane thought to carry U.S. spy agency contractor lands in Moscow

A passenger plane thought to be carrying former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden landed in Moscow on Sunday.

Airport officials said the flight from Hong Kong had landed but could not immediately confirm Snowden, who is charged by Washington with espionage, was on board. But a source at the Russian airline Aeroflot said he had booked a seat on the flight.
