US pledge not to tor­ture Snow­den

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

MOSCOW/ WASH­ING­TON: The US has made a for­mal prom­ise to Rus­sia not to tor­ture or ex­e­cute Ed­ward Snow­den if he is sent home to face charges of il­le­gally dis­clos­ing govern­ment se­crets, and the Krem­lin said Rus­sian and US se­cu­rity agen­cies are in talks over his fate.

The 30-year-old for­mer US spy agency con­trac­tor has been stuck in the tran­sit area of a Moscow air­port for more than a month de­spite Wash­ing­ton’s calls to hand him over.
