(updates previous)Rome, July 2 - An asylum appeal by
former US National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has
been received by the Italian embassy in Moscow, ANSA sources
said on Tuesday.
Snowden has appealed for political asylum from 21
different countries including Italy, according to the Wikileaks
Website Tuesday.
The asylum requests were filed from the Moscow airport
where he flew from Hong Kong after abandoning his job in Hawaii
last month.
Snowden's revelations about massive eavesdropping of phone
and Internet records at the US spy agency launched the global
Datagate scandal last month.
On Monday, Italy demanded answers from the US after
allegations surfaced in the media that the United States spied
on the diplomatic offices of the European Union and several
countries, including Italy.
Allegations were partly based on Snowden's revelations of
American government secret surveillance.
Snowden is wanted in the United States for espionage.
