The family of British diplomat Rebecca Dykes, who was killed in Lebanon over the weekend, released an official statement Tuesday thanking the Lebanese authorities for their speedy response, and the media for their "restraint".Her body was found Saturday afternoon on a highway outside of Beirut, bearing clear signs of strangulation and sexual assault. A suspect in her murder, Tarek Hesso, was arrested in the early hours of Monday.Hesso, a driver contracted by "ride-hailing" giant Uber, later confessed to the crime, providing authorities with details of Dykes' assault and murder, a judicial source told The Daily Star.
