A 2,300-year-old Mayan Temple Demolished in Belize
The AP is reporting that the majority of a Mayan pyramid was razed, even though the area is under government protection since it's a pre-Hispanic plot of land.
Construction equipment, including a backhoe claw, were discovered on Friday at the site. A small portion of the center of the pyramid mound is left standing, according to the AP.
As archeaologists said in the article - this is just despicable.
