Russian President Vladimir Putin says Snowden is in the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport and has rejected U.S. pleas to turn him over.

WikiLeaks, which says it is helping Snowden seek asylum, has declined to reveal details about Snowden's plans, citing security concerns. The group did not return messages Wednesday.

WikiLeaks on Monday denied reports that Snowden was being debriefed by Russian intelligence.
