The Egyptian authorities are investigating after explicit pictures and videos have appeared, in which apparently two people appeared naked on the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Khaled el Anany, the country's minister of antiquities, referred the case to a prosecutor for investigation, the state news agency Ahram Online reported.
The images and footage were posted on behalf of the Danish photographer Andreas Hvid and appear to depict a naked man and a woman posing with intimate poses a pinnacle of the 4,500-year-old wonder of the world
Some of the videos and images have since been demolished, Sky News reported, but at least one image is on Hvid's website.
This picture shows two unknown persons falling naked on stones at the top of the 455 foot high monument.
It is forbidden to climb the ancient pyramids beyond carefully tested paths, and the majority Muslim Egypt considers the location in Giza a valuable asset.
The entire area is closed after 5 pm and is controlled by security forces and local police officers
Giza archaeologist, Ashraf Mohi, had previously believed the video was faked for inexplicable lighting.
