Secretary of State John Kerry arrived on his first official visit to India Sunday, an AFP reporter said, as the US administration was rocked by news that a wanted former American intelligence operative had flown out of Hong Kong.

Officials travelling with Kerry declined immediate comment on the news that Edward Snowden, who faces a US arrest warrant over his leaking of a massive surveillance programme, had left Hong Kong for a "third country".
