Naked tourists on Malaysia mountain jailed

All the tourists accused of posing nude on Mount Kinabalu have been jailed and fined. The group was blamed for a magnitude 5.9 earthquake after stripping on Mount Kinabalu, which is considered sacred.
They were jailed for three days, but their sentences were back-dated to reflect time already served. A judge at Kota Kinabalu Magistrates' Court said the four had shown remorse and ordered the jail terms to run from 9 June, meaning the group is free to leave.

He also fined each defendant 5,000 Malaysian ringgit (£860/$1,331). Tourists should be properly guided and given high level orientations in various tourist centres around the world.
