Authorities in Peru say a group of tourists will be deported after desecrating the ruins of Machu Picchu – by defecating. Police say the tourists snuck onto the site and damaged the 600-year-old Temple of the Sun by causing a rock to fall from one of its walls. One tourist is also accused of going No. 2 inside the ruins. About 1 million tourists visit Machu Picchu each year, which has some experts concerned about further damage to the centuries-old ruins.
