Malaysian authorities have detained four tourists -- two Canadians, a Briton and one Dutch national -- for allegedly stripping naked on Mount Kinabalu, an act some locals say angered tribal spirits and caused a deadly earthquake, officials said.Pictures of 10 naked tourists had spread on social media and infuriated locals following the 6.0-magnitude quake that struck near the mountain Friday and killed 18 people. Six other tourists are still apparently at large, according to police.Eighteen people have been confirmed killed on the mountain, with a significant number of them young students from Singapore who were on a school excursion.
