LIMA, Peru (AP) — Peru will seek criminal charges against Greenpeace activists who damaged the world-renowned Nazca lines by leaving footprints in the adjacent desert during a publicity stunt, a senior government official said Tuesday.

"It's a true slap in the face at everything Peruvians consider sacred," Deputy Culture Minister Luis Jaime Castillo said of Monday's action by the environmental group at the famed drawings etched into Peru's coastal desert, a U.N. World Heritage site.
