US whistleblower Snowden 'still in Moscow airport'

Fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden is still in the transit area at Moscow airport, Russia's President Vladimir Putin has confirmed.

Mr Putin said the intelligence leaker remained a free man, and the sooner he chose a destination the better.

The US said earlier that it did not seek "confrontation", but that Russia should hand over Mr Snowden.

Oleg Boldyrev reports from Moscow.
