Russia to extend Snowden's asylum over continued 'death threat'
Former U.S. based National Security Agency (NSA) employee Edward Snowden's plea to extend his asylum in Russia is expected to be approved soon, said a Russian migration official.
Snowden is still under danger following charges of espionage by the United States last summer.
Snowden had applied for a continual of asylum after his current temporary asylum had expired on July 31, reports the Washington Post.
An investigation by The Post's Greg Miller reveals that the U.S. had no information on Snowden's day-to-day existence.
U.S. officials did not even have the slightest knowledge about Snowden's whereabouts in Russia, said the investigation.
