MOSCOW (AP) — An Aeroflot flight from Hong Kong believed to be carrying a former National Security Agency contractor wanted by the United States has landed in Moscow.

Hong Kong's government said Edward Snowden was allowed to leave but did not say where he was headed.

Russia's state ITAR-Tass news agency cited an unnamed Aerflot official saying the Snowden was on Flight SU213, which landed on Sunday afternoon in Moscow.

The report said he intended to fly to Cuba on Monday and then on to Caracas, Venezuela.

Missouri faces shortage of primary care doctors

Sunday, 23 June 2013 09:11 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri is facing a shortage of primary care doctors, and the strain could grow as more people soon gain health insurance under the federal health care law.

The state had a little less than 74 active patient care primary care doctors per 100,000 residents according to 2010 figures from the Association of American Medical Colleges. That ranked Missouri 35th and put it behind the national per capita average of more than 79 active primary care doctors.

The challenge of access to primary care doctors could grow as the federal health care law is fully implemented January 1st.

The law will require most Americans to obtain health insurance and provide subsidies to some. The Missouri Foundation for Health estimated that an additional roughly 350,000 Missourians could end up with insurance.
