Venezuelans divided over Snowden asylum offer

Safe haven for US whistleblower likely to further strain ties between Caracas and Washington.

    US whistleblower Edward Snowden is thought to still be inside the transit area of a Moscow international airport. But he is expected to take up an offer of asylum in Venezuela. 

    That could mark the beginning of another difficult chapter in the Latin American country's relationship with the US, and residents are divided over the offer.
