HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — Ecuador's foreign minister says he doesn't know where Edward Snowden is after the National Security Agency leaker failed to board a flight from Russia.

Ricardo Patino spoke Tuesday, a day after an Aeroflot plane with a seat registered for Snowden flew to Cuba without him. Ecuador is considering an asylum request from Snowden, who is wanted by the United States on espionage charges.

Patino told reporters in Hanoi, Vietnam, where he is traveling, "I don't know exactly where he is right now."

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has said Snowden was safe but he couldn't elaborate. The secrets-spilling organization has embraced Snowden and his efforts to gain asylum.
