Snowden Drops Russia Asylum Bid

Moscow (AP) - NSA leaker Edward Snowden has reportedly dropped his bid for asylum in Russia.

Russian news agencies are quoting President Vladimir Putin's spokesman as saying that Snowden withdrew his request when he learned about the terms Moscow has set out.

Putin said on Monday that Russia is ready to shelter Snowden as long as he stops leaking U.S. secrets.

Meanwhile several of the other countries with the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks say Snowden has applied for asylum--and have also said he cannot apply from abroad.

Officials in Germany, Norway, Austria, Poland, Finland and Switzerland say he must make his request on their soil.
