Guardian Reporter: Snowden May Be Hiding In A Safe House

At present Edward Snowden may be bunkering down in a “safe house” in Hong Kong, according to a reporter who worked with the source of the National Security Agency leaks. 

“Knowing it was only a matter of time before he was found, Snowden checked out” of his hotel on Monday, The Guardian’s Ewan MacAskill wrote in an article published Tuesday. “It is thought he is now in a safe house.”

The Guardian U.S.’ chief reporter Ed Pilkington said on MSNBC earlier that morning that he personally didn’t know where Snowden was hiding.
