Yale not returning Peruvian artifacts


LIMA, Peru – On Sunday the State Newspaper El Peruano reported the 2006 agreement with Yale University to return to Peru the more than 40 thousand Inca artifacts removed from Machu Picchu had dissolved over disagreements. In response, the Justice Ministry of Peru began developing a law suit against Yale. According to El Peruano, government officials could not immediately be reached for comment and calls to Yale were unanswered at the time of publication.
