Protest erupt over Machu Picchu ticket sales halt

STORY: Both foreign and local tourists were stranded and unable to reach the iconic historical site. Many of them protested as they demanded solutions for what they deemed a loss of time and money.

Local protesters went on strike and blocked roads. They demanded that 50% of the tickets to the archaeological site be sold in town and in person, to help reactivate the economy, and an increase to the number of tourists allowed to enter.
