URGENT - Hong Kong Extradition Alert
(CNN) -- A U.S. request to Hong Kong for the extradition of Edward Snowden "met all the requirements" for extradition, a Justice Department official said Sunday, refuting an assertion from authorities in Hong Kong. Officials in Hong Kong asked "a few questions late Friday and we were in the process of answering those questions," the official said. "We believe we were meeting those requirements." Hong Kong said Sunday that documents provided by the U.S. government "did not fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law."
