Snowden can`t fly from Russia as documents invalid: Report

Moscow: Fugitive US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden cannot leave the transit zone at a Moscow airport to fly on for another destination as his travel documents are invalid, a report said on Thursday.

"Snowden does not have valid documents. He is not flying to Cuba or anywhere else for that matter," a source familiar with the situation told the state RIA Novosti news agency.
The report came after Snowden again failed on Thursday to appear on Aeroflot`s 1005 GMT service from Moscow to Havana, seen as his most likely onward route.

A senior Ecuadorean foreign ministry official on Wednesday denied claims by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks that Quito had given Snowden a travel document after his US passport was cancelled.
