A Chilean prosecutor urged a court on Wednesday to dismiss criminal accusations against a Pakistani man who was arrested after being found with traces of explosives on his bag when he entered the US Embassy in May.

Prosecutor Alejandro Pena said he did not find evidence that Mohamed Saif Ur Khan, a 28-year-old Pakistani, was involved in a terrorist plot.

Khan, 28, has denied any wrongdoing. He said he didn't know why embassy bomb detection equipment found traces of tetryl, a chemical used to boost the power of explosives, on a bag, documents and a cell phone he had with him.

Chilean police later found traces of the same chemical on clothes in the suspect's apartment.
