A 26-year-old Dutch man was one of three tourists removed from the Incan citadel Machu Picchu in Peru on Tuesday because they dropped their pants and took photos of their bare backsides, AFP reports. 

The other two tourists are a 21-year-old German and a 24-year-old from Switzerland. "The three tourists dropped their pants to show their buttocks and took photos", a police spokesperson said to the news wire. They were removed from the ancient site, but not arrested.

The Peruvian authorities banned nudeness at the citadel, because they consider it disrespectful.
