Nude 'earthquake' tourists deported

Four Western tourists who posed naked on top of Malaysia's tallest peak and were blamed by some for a deadly earthquake six days later were sentenced to three days in jail and fined yesterday after they admitted obscene behaviour.

They will also be deported.

The four, two from Canada and one each from Britain and the Netherlands, infuriated Malaysians, some of whom said their actions angered the spirits of the mountain, Mount Kinabalu, and triggered last Friday's quake which killed 18 people.
