This morning I heard a BBC radio reporter interview a British
astronomer about this. The astronomer suggested that the reports
of the crater emitting noxious fumes indicated that the crater
was volcanic in origin. He also noted that Peru is in a region
of active volcanism. This seems to be a plausible argument given
what I've heard so far. A geologist should be able to quickly
determine if the crater is indeed volcanic by examining the site
in person.

The BBC reporter facetiously alluded to the similarity of this
crater to the one made by a Martian spaceship in Wells' War Of
The Worlds, but at least they're taking the story somewhat
seriously. It doesn't seem to have been picked up by any news
organizations in the US yet.
