Unmarried Malaysian woman falls to death fleeing Islamic police

According to an Associated Press story, a woman fleeing Islamic police fell several stories to her death when she tried to escape the apartment of a male friend through his back window.  Religious police raided the apartment outside the southern city of Malacca early Sunday after being tipped off that an unwed couple was alone inside.   Under Islamic law, unmarried couples can be charged with "khalwat" or "close proximity" if they are caught in a room alone together. Unmarried sex is against Islamic law.
