Beijing remains tight-lipped on Snowden

Officials in Beijing are distancing themselves from the issue of National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden During a regular foreign ministry briefing on Thursday, the spokesperson told reporters, sorry, but we have no information on this right now. But they may have some later. Since relocating to Hong Kong after his tell all revelation about the U.S. government's secret phone and internet data monitoring program- Snowden has spoken to the English language newspaper the South China Morning Post. During an interview Snowden said he would fight extradition charges in court should the U.S. issue an arrest warrant. He said he plans to let the people and authorities of Hong Kong decide his fate. And for now, at least, they appear to support him. A small rally sprung up in front of the U.S. consulate with demonstrators holding signs calling for Snowden to be allowed to remain at liberty. A larger march in Snowden's hounor is planned for this weekend.
