Wikileaks: Venezuelan President Maduro invites Edward Snowden to apply for asylum in his country.

Russia Today reports “Russia will create a government body dedicated to investigating violations of human rights in connection with the NSA’s mass surveillance program Prism. Head of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko said that this did not mean blocking US companies like Google and Microsoft from Russia, but it was necessary to understand the extent of their surveillance.”

This comes as the European Commission (EC) Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding has reportedly written to British Foreign Secretary William Hague “demanding an explanation over leaked reports that British intelligence is tapping cables that carry global telephone and Internet traffic.”
