Russian website publishes photo of shopping 'Snowden'
MOSCOW (AFP) - A sensationalist Russian news website on Monday published a photograph that it claims is the first to show US intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden since he emerged from a Moscow airport in August.
In the blurry image published by Life News, a casually dressed man sporting a goatee with sunglasses perched on his head is pictured pushing a supermarket trolley full of groceries across a road.
A car with partly legible Russian plates and a crossing sign identify the scene as in Russia.
"The photograph was taken in Moscow," said Life News, which is known for its close ties to the Kremlin and security services.
