Authorities say somebody last week apparently dismantled the Mauna Kea summit alter with a machete.

The alter was built in 1997 for spiritual purposes and included personal momentos of two soldiers killed in Iraq.</p>

This past weekend vandals partly dismantled an ahu on the grounds of Iolani Palace this weekend, scattering more than 20 sacred stones around the grassy area and leaving one atop the site’s gated burial mound. That shrine was built in 1993.</p>
