Reports: British Woman Found Dead in Northern Metn
A dead body found Saturday morning on the side of the Fast Metn Highway has been identified as that of a British woman, media reports said on Sunday.
"The body belongs to a British embassy employee and it carries clear marks of rape," MTV quoted Internal Security Forces sources as saying.
A British embassy spokesman confirmed to MTV "the death of a British woman" in Lebanon, noting that the embassy is closely cooperating with Lebanese authorities while offering full support for the woman's family.
MTV said the woman had spent her night at the Gemmayze nightlife area in Beirut.
LBCI television and al-Jadeed TV identified the woman as Rebecca Dykes, 30.
