Edward Snowden emerged from his airport hideaway Friday, telling rights groups that he wants temporary asylum in Russia but still hopes to travel to Latin America to avoid prosecution by U.S. authorities.

It was the world’s first glimpse of self-declared leaker, who has been holed up in the transit zone of Sheremetyevo Airport since June 23.

He met a small group of human rights campaigners and lawyers at an undisclosed part of the airport at 5 p.m. local time (9 a.m. ET) Friday.

Although the meeting was not public, some of those present posted details to Twitter, including Tanya Lokshina of Human Rights Watch who released a handout image that she said was of Snowden.
