Washington has sent Ireland an arrest warrant for US whistleblower Edward Snowden, reports the Irish Times. The pre-emptive move is to prevent Snowden from stopping over in Ireland's Shannon airport should he take a flight to Cuba. Snowden is thought to still be in the transit lounge of Moscow airport.
