Confusion over the whereabouts of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden grew on Monday after a plane took off from Moscow for Cuba with an empty seat booked in his name.
Snowden has applied for asylum in Ecuador and was expected to travel there with stops in Cuba and Venezuela.
He has not been seen since he arrived in Moscow on Sunday from Hong Kong.
The founder of the WikiLeaks secret-spilling organisation, Julian Assange, insisted he couldn’t go into details about where Snowden is, but said he was safe.
Snowden has applied for asylum in Ecuador, Iceland and possibly other countries, he said.
An Aeroflot representative who wouldn’t give her name told The Associated Press that Snowden wasn’t on flight SU150 to Havana, which was filled with journalists trying to track him down.
AP reporters on the flight couldn’t see him either.
In the Ecuadorean capital, Quito, on Monday one woman outside the Carondelet Government Palace said she thought Snowden should be given asylum.
“I think he should be helped because people who leave here receive political asylum in other countries, so it’s good that people get it here also,” said Mercedes Vera.
Snowden has requested the legal advice of former Spanish judge Baltasar Garzon, who is best known for indicting a totalitarian ruler, former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, in 1998, and trying to put him on trial in Madrid for crimes against humanity.
However, speaking outside his hotel in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Monday, Garzon said that at this moment he did not represent Snowden’s interests.
“First I have to speak to him and study the case, but at this moment I do not represent the interests of Mr Snowden,” said Garzon.
Despite Snowden having been expected to travel to Cuba en route to Ecuador, Havana’s government has not publicly acknowledged that he is headed to the Communist-run island.
US-Cuba relations have been strained for more than half a century and while both parties have met recently to discuss migration policies and direct mail service, some citizens are concerned that this new development with Snowden could affect a diplomatic breakthrough.

My favorite souvenir from a trip somewhere is something simple, like a coin, or a pebble. Something ordinary that people come across every day but don’t necessarily give a lot of thought to.
Several of these were given to me by my grandfather, who was a merchant marine going to northern Europe before & during World War Two. The French & Soviet coins from the 1930s were from him, as were the French & German ones from the 1950s, as well as the Irish one from 1978.
May got the Mexican and Dubai coins on work trips that I wasn’t able to go on.
I have no idea where the Cuban coins came from. I seem to remember Kaite brought back the coins from Costa Rica.
The MBTA & video arcade ones probably shouldn’t count :-). We recently had a roll of tokens for the New Hampshire turnpike that would have been good here too, but they abandoned their token system and I think we must have thrown the tokens away. Oh well.
Asia is under-represented here, must rectify that.
