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.

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

Because Mr Snowden is in the pre-immigration area of the airport, he is technically not yet on Russian soil.
