Peru’s Humala Dismisses U.S. Tourist Kidnap Threat, RPP Says

Feb. 16 (Bloomberg) -- Peruvian President Ollanta Humala said yesterday that he doesn’t believe there’s a kidnap threat for U.S. tourists visiting the ruins of Machu Picchu, RPP reported.

Humala, during a press conference, said the alert issued Feb. 14 by the U.S. State Department, is “baseless,” the Lima-based news website said. The U.S. agency has barred travel by officials to Cuzco, where Machu Picchu is located, saying a criminal organization may be planning to abduct U.S. tourists.
