Snowden in so much danger that he wears disguise to go out: Lawyer
MOSCOW (AFP) - United States intelligence leaker Edward Snowden is living under guard at a secret address in Russia and sometimes emerges in disguise, although he remains in such danger that even a family visit could endanger his security, his lawyer said Monday.
Snowden has avoided all contact with the media since arriving in Russia on a flight from Hong Kong in June, and his lawyer Anatoly Kucherena has become his unofficial spokesman.
"I am his only link with the outside world at the moment. Even his contacts with his parents are carried out through me," Mr Kucherena said in an interview published in Itogi weekly magazine.
Mr Kucherena gave few details of how Snowden occupies his time, but said he is able to go out in disguise.
