Why does Malaysia have earthquakes
At least 13 dead in earthquake in Malaysia
At least 13 people were killed in a severe earthquake on the Malaysian island of Borneo, and six more are still missing, according to the tourism minister of the state of Sabah, Masidi Manjun. Rescue workers had already found two bodies on Friday.
All victims were counted on Mount Kinabalu on the island. There the earth shook on Friday with a magnitude of 6.0 on the Richter scale.
Caught below the summit
In the meantime, helpers have brought more than 160 mountain hikers from the summit of Kinabalu. According to the Ministry of Tourism, the last group was down again early in the morning and therefore safe.
The hikers - including western foreigners - had stuck below the 4095 meter high summit. They could not descend on their own for fear of more rockfalls and avalanches.

Frost in a tropical climate
At Kinabalu, popular with mountain hikers, the quake triggered landslides and rockfalls. The mountain on the island of Borneo is one of the highest peaks in Southeast Asia.
Thunderstorms and strong winds often occur there. Despite the tropical climate, temperatures can drop below freezing. Because the Kinabalu is easy to climb despite its height, it attracts many tourists.
