Temple 6 at the Tikal complex has been the site of multiple criminal incidents in the past two months. Recently two Americans and their guide were accosted by three armed and masked men on the main path to the temple just after 8:00 A.M. The Americans were robbed of their belongings and then taken to a clearing where three Scottish tourists were being held by a single gunman. The bandits then left and later returned with two Italian travelers and robbed them as well. No one was hurt in these incidents, which took about two and a half hours. Two months ago, a German woman was raped by unknown assailants inside the temple.
