MOSCOW (AP) - The Russian lawyer for Edward Snowden says the National Security Agency leaker has determined where he will live, but is still figuring out what he will do during his stay in Russia.

Russia granted Snowden temporary asylum on Thursday, allowing him to leave the Moscow airport where he had been holed up for almost six weeks. He can now remain in Russia for at least a year as he evades charges of espionage in the United States.

His lawyer says Snowden "is in a safe place," but the location will remain secret out of concerns for his security. The lawyer says as soon as Snowden decides what he will do in Russia, he will announce his decision himself.
