Snowden's whereabouts unknown - Jun 11th, 2013 - International

— The American defense contractor who leaked information about classified U.S. surveillance programs is in Hong Kong, but the exact whereabouts of 29-year-old Edward Snowden are not known.

Meanwhile, the Justice Department is investigating whether Snowden's disclosures are a criminal offense.

Advocates say if Snowden is forced to return to the U.S. to face charges, they'll raise money for his legal defense.

— A journalist for a British newspaper says the American defense contractor who exposed secret U.S. surveillance programs provided him with documents he hasn't yet written about.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian says more revelations should come out over the next several weeks and months.

Greenwald's reports last week exposed the U.S. government programs to collect telephone and Internet records.
