Putin tells Snowden to stop leaking US secrets if he wants to stay in Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that intelligence fugitive and ex-Booz Allen employee Edward Snowden must stop leaking US secrets if he wishes to stay in Russia.

Snowden is thought to be in hiding at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, while Russia and the US continue to wrangle over his fate. Ecuador, where Edward Snowden has requested asylum, said a decision could take weeks and asked Washington to argue its case for extradition.
