This is WTF News >

Authorities in Peru say an ancient pyramid at the oldest archaeological site near the capital, Lima, has been destroyed. They are pressing criminal charges against two real-estate companies blamed for tearing down the structure, which was 6m (20-ft) high.

An archaeologist said those responsible had committed "irreparable damage". The building was one of 12 pyramids found at the El Paraiso complex and is thought to be at least 4,000 years old. The site, which dates back to the Late Preceramic (3500-1800 BC) period, is situated several kilometres north of Lima.

Destruction of ancient structures by Mother Nature is one thing, but a pyramid to be intentionally destroyed just to put some building crap in it's place? That is beyond nuts! Those developers definitely need to pay huge, and I mean a HUGE amount of money (which is not even enough to pay for a whole history of a place).

This kind of crazy stuff that some people do really enrages me.
