British Government Says Edward Snowden is Not Welcome in the UK

Warns airlines not to allow the NSA whistleblower to get on U.K.-bound flights


BANGKOK (AP) - The British government has warned airlines around the world not to allow Edward Snowden, who leaked information on top-secret U.S. government surveillance programs, to fly to the United Kingdom. A travel alert, dated Monday on a Home Office letterhead, said carriers should deny Snowden boarding because "the individual is highly likely to be refused entry to the UK."
