Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who exposed the extent of the US government’s mass surveillance programs, has cancelled his trip to Moscow, where he was set to speak at the Snow Academy of Technologies conference. The pro-Kremlin newspaper Izvestia reported on Monday that Snowden had been spotted at a Moscow airport boarding a flight to Havana, where he is expected to request asylum. But later reports from the Guardian and CNN contradicted these claims, saying that Snowden’s Cuba visit was to obtain a Russian passport.
A few days ago, Wikileaks published a lot of information about official emails between The Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, and other officials about the government’s attitude to the European migrant crisis. But what the world may not know, is that The Chancellor herself is very generous when it comes to giving away items, especially her clothes.

When rapper Aitch handed one fan his jersey at his first Soccer Aid performance, he was overjoyed, but things became uncomfortable when the receiver nearly had to return it.
The World XI squad won 3-0 at Soccer Aid tonight, with Lee Mack scoring the game-winning goal in the last minute at Etihad Stadium.
Despite England’s string of defeats, it was all in the name of charity, with more than £13 million collected for Unicef.
With this in mind, one player decided to take an unusual step when his time on the field seemed to be coming to an end.
Before tossing his jersey into the throng, Aitch made the motion of signing it, which was grabbed by a thrilled little fan.
He was quickly ordered back into the field, although he was unable to do so without wearing his England jersey.
As someone was sent to collect the piece of equipment, commentator Iain Stirling cracked a joke.

Fortunately, Aitch was able to find another shirt to wear, and he managed to retain possession of the autographed one, putting it on to ensure it was not stolen from him.
After the funny incident, fans were left reacting on social media, which didn’t go unnoticed by others watching.
‘No way they were going to make the child hand up the Aitch jersey, I would have refused [crying laughing emoji] #SoccerAid,’ one Twitter user said.
‘Wish I went to this match only to buy a jersey from Aitch #SoccerAid,’ said another.
‘Can you tell me who received the Aitch shirt? A third replied, ‘I’ll give you £100 and donate it to charity #SoccerAid.’
‘#SoccerAid,’ said another fan who was touched by the gesture. #Aitch did a fantastic job signing his jersey for the little boy.’

Aitch was on the field with some of England’s greatest players, including Paul Scholes and Gary Neville.
However, the powerful squad was unable to win this evening, as the World XI proved to be a formidable opponent.
They went up thanks to two goals from Love Island winner and presenter Kem Cetinay, before Lee Mack’s winner put them three goals up.
After the event, Unicef’s co-founder Robbie Williams announced the final total: £13,014,769 had been raised for the organization.
