Tourists arrested after stripping naked for photos at Machu Picchu
The two men were reportedly charged with moral misconduct. after being detained by guards.

AUTHORITIES IN PERU yesterday arrested a pair of European tourists who had stripped naked to take photos at the Machu Picchu ruins, local media reported.

Guards spotted the two men – a Briton and a Frenchman – after they removed their clothes to take nude photos with a cell phone, the Andina news agency reported, citing police.

They were taken to a police station and then to court, where they were charged with moral misconduct.

Peru increased surveillance at the site in March 2014 as nude photos and streaking became increasingly common at Machu Picchu.

The 15th-century Inca citadel was named a Unesco World Heritage site in 1983.
