Guardian has the story:

"In the name of America's dignity ... I have decided to offer humanitarian asylum to Edward Snowden," Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro told a televised military parade marking Venezuela's independence day...

Maduro said Venezuela was ready to offer him sanctuary, and that the details Snowden had revealed of a US spy program had exposed the nefarious schemes of the US "empire".

"He has told the truth, in the spirit of rebellion, about the US spying on the whole world," Maduro said.
