A 22-year-old German tourist died on Monday after falling from the peak of Mount Kinabalu on Malaysia's Borneo island, police said. 

District police officer Rahman Kassim said Victoria Paulsen fell some 30 metres down a rocky surface from the peak of Kinabalu, one of Southeast Asia's highest mountains and a major tourist attraction in the eastern state of Sabah.

Paulsen had climbed the peak to see the sunrise with other tourists including a guide and at least one male friend, Rahman said. Her body has been sent to a mortuary.
