Tourists deported for crapping in Macchu Picchu and damaging the stonework

Peruvian police are deporting five tourists from Chile, Brazil, France and Argentina for allegedly sneaking into the Macchu Picchu citadel, defacating among the Incan ruins and breaking the stonework inside the Temple of the Sun.

According to The Guardian, "An Argentinian man will remain in the country to face charges of 'destroying Peru’s cultural heritage' after he acknowledged a lead role in the vandalism."

In recent years, Peruvian authorities have also had to crack down on tourists stripping naked and streaking through the ruins for photos.
