-

Six tourists have been arrested in Peru for allegedly relieving themselves at a temple in the world-famous Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. Cusco police chief Wilbert Leyva said on Monday that he was being investigated for allegedly desecrating the cultural heritage of the South American country, according to the state news agency Andina.

The tourists come from France, Argentina, Brazil and Chile. They face four years in prison. The tourists were reportedly arrested on Sunday after park guards and police found them in the Sun Temple. Most of the temple in central Machu Picchu is closed to tourists.
