BEIRUT (Reuters) – A Lebanese Uber driver with a criminal record has confessed to the killing of a British woman who worked at the British embassy in Beirut, a Lebanese security source said yesterday. The source said investigations into the murder of Rebecca Dykes showed the motive was purely criminal and the suspect had confessed to the crime. Lebanon’s NNA news agency reported the suspect had picked Dykes up in his taxi in Gemmayzeh district on Friday evening before assaulting and killing her. Police traced his car through surveillance cameras on the highway, NNA reported. Dykes’ body was found strangled by a main road outside Beirut, a security source said yesterday.
