As a Peruvian I am furious and in disbelief that this was allowed! After reading more , i have found out this was not allowed by the Government and they plan to bring up charges to the company involved. We Peruvians are so proud of ancestors and our archeological sites are considered sacred. It is a very sad day for Peruvians.
