Lima: Peruvian police have freed one of two Chileans arrested this week on suspicion of espionage.
Local prosecutor Lelia Vasquez says 34-year-old bicycle trekker Maximiliano Serain, who had pitched his tent a few meters from the perimeter fence of the El Pato airbase on Peru`s northern coast, turned out to be the artist he claimed to be.
Police had said they found him with a camera and sketches of the base.
The second Chilean remains under arrest in the southern city of Tacna. Peruvian news reports say 19-year-old Nicolas Pizarro was arrested taking photographs at an Army post there.
