Machu Picchu artifacts returned

The story of Peru’s struggle to get back the Machu Picchu pieces is similar to that of Greece and Egypt.

    Hundreds of ancient artifacts from Machu Picchu are back home after nearly 100 years in the United States.

    Yale University returned the pieces after a three-year legal battle. They are now in a local museum in the city of Cusco.

    Charles Stratford has more.
