Snowden doesn’t board plane headed to Cuba

Confusion over the whereabouts of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden grew on Monday after a jetliner flew from Moscow to Havana with an empty seat booked in his name.

Aeroflot said earlier that Snowden had registered for the flight using his U.S. passport, which the United States recently annulled.

An Aeroflot representative who wouldn’t give her name told the Associated Press that Snowden didn’t board Flight SU150 to Havana, which was filled with journalists trying to track him down. Two Associated Press journalists on the flight confirmed after it arrived Monday evening in Havana that Snowden wasn’t on the plane.
