Venezuela confirms Snowden asylum request
Venezuela's president says that his country has received an asylum request from NSA leakster Edward Snowden.
President Nicolas Maduro had already offered asylum to Snowden, who apparently is holed up in the transit lounge of a Moscow airport. Bolivia and Nicaragua also say they'll grant asylum. Ecuador says it will consider any request.
Maduro says it is perhaps the world's "first collective humanitarian asylum" with various countries saying "Come here!"
