Maya pyramid destroyed in Belize… to get gravel

17 May
The machinery of a construction company has destroyed one of the most important archaeological treasures of Belize with the most idiotic possible purpose: to get gravel from it. 

The pyramid of Nohmul was erected some 2300 years ago and are part of the most important patrimonial set of Belize, located not far from the Mexican border. 
Belizean police claims to be investigating the incident and may lay charges against the vandals.
