A woman watches a footage on her computer, showing the lawyer of fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden showing his client’s one year’s asylum permit at Sheremetyevo airport in Moscow on August 1, 2013. Edward Snowden, the US intelligence leaker who left a Moscow airport Thursday after winning asylum in Russia, will be helped in his new country of residence by “American friends,” his lawyer said. “I can open up the curtain a little. Of course he has acquired friends in Russia, American friends, who can ensure his security for some time,” Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told Rossiya 24 channel. AFP PHOTO / STRINGER
