Fugitive Snowden left for secure location: lawyer

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Fugitive former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden has left for an undisclosed secure location, a Russian lawyer assisting him said on Thursday.

"I have just seen him off. He has left for a secure location," Anatoly Kucherena told state broadcaster Russia 24. "Security is a very serious matter for him."
