Man jailed for damaging ancient site

According to this article, a man has been sentenced to six years in prison for damaging a sundial at the ancient Incan city of Machu Picchu in Peru, South America. It's hard to tell from the short article whether the damage was accidental, but the sentence is apparently harsher than most handed out for this sort of offense.
