The National Geographic Society on Tuesday announced discovery of the tomb of a "Peruvian King Tut," laden with a wealth of elaborate gold and silver artifacts, and hailed it as the richest archeological find in the Western Hemisphere. The discovery of the burial site, containing more than 100 precious ornaments, clothing and decorated ceramics, sheds light on the Moche people, a little-known civilization that flourished on the northern coast of Peru 1,000 years before the Incas.

A West German climber was robbed and fatally shot in the Andes by two masked men, Peruvian police said, but his climbing partner escaped unharmed. The shooting occurred last Wednesday near 22,205-foot Mt. Huascaran, the highest peak in Peru. A police officer in nearby Huaraz City quoted Finn Stoll, 20, as saying the attackers had followed Jon Philip Knops, 20, and him before they stopped to camp. The region is known for guerrilla activity, but police said the case appears to be a common assault.
