(AP) The WikiLeaks website says Edward Snowden, the American who admitted leaking National Security Agency documents, is seeking asylum in 19 more countries, including China.


The website says WikiLeaks legal adviser Sarah Harrison delivered the requests for asylum to an official at the Russian consulate at the Moscow airport on Sunday. WikiLeaks says some of the requests have already been delivered to the appropriate embassies.


The WikiLeaks statement says requests were made to China, Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, India and several European countries. Snowden had planned earlier to seek asylum in Ecuador and has requested asylum in Russia.


The asylum requests reported by WikiLeaks could not be independently authenticated. WikiLeaks is the anti-secrecy group that has adopted Snowden and his cause.
