Video: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden seeks official pardon

A new campaign urging US President Barack Obama to pardon the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden has been launched by his legal team.

The effort has support from the American Civil Liberties Union, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, as well as several prominent figures from the technology industry.

Snowden has been living in asylum in Russia since he disclosed a vast amount of secret information to The Guardian newspaper in 2013.
