Another tourist has been attacked by an angry crowd after climbing Mexico’s Chichén Itzá.

The Polish tourist was beaten with a stick after being surrounded by furious locals.

It is forbidden to climb the Mayan temple.

It was caught on video.

The tourist was detained by police for several hours, likely for his own safety.

It follows a similar incident recently after a woman did the same and was berated by onlookers.
