KUCHING (May 26): An Egyptian student studying at a private university in Miri was found dead in the corridor of the second floor of an apartment early this morning, having fallen from the 15th floor of the building.
Miri police chief Lim Meng Seah said the deceased, Yahia Hatem Helmy Mahmoud Sultan, in his early 20s, was found at about 5.30am yesterday.
