Hong Kong Protesters Rally for Snowden

Hundreds of demonstrators staged a rally at the U.S. consulate in Hong Kong Saturday to urge the city's government not to extradite Edward Snowden, the American who leaked top-secret information about U.S. surveillance programs.

The protesters gathered in a heavy rain to also speak out against the U.S. National Security Agency's monitoring of communications traffic in other countries and cities, including Hong Kong.

The U.S. launched a criminal investigation after Snowden, leaked details of Washington's secret Internet and telephone surveillance programs.

Snowden has gone underground in Hong Kong after traveling from his home in the U.S. state of Hawaii.
