VIDEO: Russia to extend Snowden's asylum beyond August

(RT) Over half a year after he leaked 1.7 million classified National Security Agency documents to the world, Edward Snowden took to the internet for the second time ever on Thursday to answer questions from the public. The former NSA contractor talked about where President Barack Obama's NSA reform speech fell short, addressed the threats on his life and defended his decision to flee the US. On Friday, Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign affairs committee of Russia's lower house of parliament, said that Russia would extend Snowden's asylum beyond the end of his one-year temporary grant that ends in August. Glasgow University students are campaigning to get the whistleblower elected as rector of the Scottish school. RT correspondent Meghan Lopez brings us a wrap-up of the latest Snowden news.
