Snowden remains at Moscow airport's transit zone as his passport revoked - source

Former U.S. Central Intelligence Agency employee and National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden cannot buy a new plane ticket as the U.S. has revoked his passport, and this is why he is still staying in the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, a source from Snowden's entourage told Interfax.
