The man who killed British diplomat Rebecca Dykes over the weekend was arrested early Monday by a Lebanese security agency, a security source told The Daily Star.The source added it was not clear whether the Internal Security Forces Information Division or General Security had arrested the man, who was identified in local media reports as T.H., adding that an official statement would likely be released soon from either agency.After not hearing from Dykes, friends raised the alarm with police Sunday and it was quickly determined that the body was hers.The sources told The Daily Star that after leaving a Gemmayzeh bar named Demo between 2 and 2:30 a.m., Dykes was believed to have gotten into an SUV – that was the last time she was seen alive.
