Chile fire suspect's father denies son's involvement

The father of an Israeli tourist suspected of starting a fire in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park told Army Radio Sunday that his son was not involved in the incident.
Rotem Zinger, a 23-year-old from Ness Ziona, was arrested and freed on bond pending trial on Saturday.
"He doesn't understand where the accusations came from," Yahzikiel Zinger said of his son during the interview. "He was very far from the fire when it started and he had two days to run away if he really was guilty, and he didn't feel that way."
