Former US defence contractor Edward Snowden says he has completed what he set out to do, after months of releasing a mass of documents on the US spying on its citizens and other nations.
In a wide-ranging interview with the Washington Post, Mr Snowden said he did not want to change society but "I wanted to give society a chance to determine if it should change itself.”
“All I wanted was for the public to be able to have a say in how they are governed," he added.
