According to the Guardian, that's, an act some Malaysians have said angered the spirits of the mountain and caused an earthquake.

Police in the eastern state of Sabah reportedly arrested a foreign woman involved in the incident.
The woman was held at the airport as she was about to leave for Kuala Lumpur.
