Snowden lawyer's bag intrigues Moscow Airport journalists

Speculation was raised at Moscow Airport on Wednesday that US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden was to finally leave the transit zone after one month.

An appearance by the fugitive's lawyer carrying a paper bag came amid reports that Snowden was to be given Russian travel documents.

The BBC's Daniel Sandford was one of the journalists at the airport, and was there to see the bag's contents revealed.
