| by Sarah Fruchtnicht

Security at Peru’s 15th Century historical site Machu Picchu is being increased after a recent spate of streakers.

A video of a couple streaking through the Incan citadel went viral last month, sparking a trend at the ancient site. Two males were arrested for streaking at the site in 2013.

The country’s new regional director of culture, Ricardo Ruiz Caro, announced there will be more surveillance at the park to "avoid these unfortunate events that threaten cultural heritage."
