Two British medical students were stabbed to death in Malaysia on Wednesday (local time) after a quarrel with four local men, officials and media reports said.

The two students were found lying in a road in Kuching early Wednesday with stab wounds in the back and chest, Malaysia's The Star newspaper said.

It quoted police as saying the students and four suspects began quarreling in a pub. The suspects followed the students when they left the pub and attacked them after pursuing them in a car, Sarawak police Deputy Commissioner Chai Khin Chung said.

He said police have arrested three of the suspects and are searching for the fourth. Police also seized the suspects' car and a knife allegedly used in the attack, the newspaper said.

"The main suspect, aged 23, is in custody," it quoted Chai as telling a news conference.

Britain's Newcastle University identified the students as Neil Dalton and Aidan Brunger and said they were working on a six-week placement with five other medical students in a hospital in Kuching.
