BANGKOK (AP) -- The British government has issued an alert to airlines around the world, urging them not to allow former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden to board flights to the United Kingdom.
Snowden revealed documents about U.S. secret surveillance programs after fleeing to Hong Kong.
Meanwhile, a popular Communist Party-backed Newspaper in China says China's leadership should let Snowden stay, so he can provide the Chinese with more information.
