SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

A Vermont man who recently made news for trying to help NSA leaker Edward Snowden has died.

Last week, we interviewed Garry Davis about his offer to send Snowden a "world passport" to help him get out of international limbo at the Moscow airport.

Two days after our interview, Davis went into hospice care. He died Wednesday.

Six decades ago, Davis declared himself a "citizen of the world" and set up the World Service Authority to issue passports under the utopian belief that national borders should not restrict people's movements.
