7:16 pm on 27 February 2012

A man of Russian descent who arrived in American Samoa two months ago for what was to be a brief visit, is still being stopped from leaving.

He is barred by the US Department of Homeland Security from entering Hawaii, but it is unclear why.

A Family in Nu'uuli has taken him in while he waits to get permission from local and federal authorities to leave.
