Santiago: A Pakistani man will be charged
with violating gun control laws in Chile on Tuesday after traces of
explosives were detected on his body and belongings during a
visit to the US embassy, police said.
The suspicious substance was detected when the man
identified as Mohamed Said Uf Rejaman, 28, went through a
security checkpoint yesterday, prompting embassy staff to
notify police. He was arrested on site.

Police experts found traces of a TNT explosive derivative
on the suspect`s hands, cell phone, bag and documentation.

The man said he did not know where it had come from and
he was only at the embassy to renew his visa.
He arrived in Chile about three months ago on a visa and
had been working at a hotel in the capital.

Police have raided his home in downtown Santiago.

The arrest came just a week after Pakistani-born
naturalised US citizen Faisal Shahzad was pulled off a plane
to Dubai and arrested for allegedly leaving a sport utility
vehicle rigged to explode in New York`s crowded Times Square.
