      UN Official to Investigate Snowden Leaks


      Ben Emmerson, the senior counterterrorism official at the United Nations, said Monday he will launch an investigation into Edward Snowden’s surveillance leaks.

      The British Guardian reported that Emmerson will assess whether British parliament members were misled about its country’s surveillance activities.  Based on the review, investigators will submit recommendations to the UN General Assembly next fall regarding oversight standards.
