Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has claimed that Edward Snowden left Hong Kong on 23rd June bound for Ecuador via Russia and other states.
He said Snowden is not a traitor or a spy but "a whistleblower who has told the public an important truth."
Precisely how US fugitive Edward Snowden got out of Hong Kong remains a mystery, but many here in China are hailing him as a hero.
Edward Snowden is believed to be in Moscow and was not on a flight to Havana earlier as expected.
Whatever you think of Edward Snowden, he's changed the way the world's two largest powers deal with each other.
