Malaysian Officials Blame Tourists Peeing on Mountain for Deadly Earthquake
Malaysia suffered an earthquake that killed many, including 18 climbers on Mount Kinabalu at the time of the disaster. Rescuers are still looking for other missing climbers. A few days before the earthquake, Malaysian officials arrested 4 western tourists for snapping nude selfies and peeing atop the mountain. See the photo here.
They're being held on an indecent behavior charge while the Sabah state police investigate. Another Sabah official blames the tragedy on the Dutch and Canadian visitors saying that they "showed disrespect to the sacred mountain." Malaysian officials believe this disrespect to the mountain is what sparked the earthquake, killing many.
