Edward Snowden Asylum Request In Brazil Rejected

Posted: Updated:


BRASILIA, July 2 (Reuters) - Brazil will not grant asylum to former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday, adding that it will leave the request unanswered.

The rejection makes Brazil the latest in a flurry of countries that have spurned asylum requests from Snowden, who is wanted in the United States for leaking information about secret U.S. electronic surveillance programs. (Reporting by Alonso Soto; Writing by Todd Benson; Editing by Vicki Allen)
