LONDON — A driver for Uber in Lebanon has been arrested in connection with the killing of a British diplomat in Beirut over the weekend, and the ride-hailing company said that it was cooperating with the authorities.
The body of the victim, Rebecca Dykes, was found next to a highway on the outskirts of the Lebanese capital on Saturday. She is thought to have spent Friday night at a friend’s goodbye party in the Gemmayze district of Beirut.
We are horrified by this senseless act of violence,” said Harry Porter, a spokesman for Uber. “Our hearts are with the victim and her family. We are working with authorities to assist their investigation in any way we can.”
News outlets have reported that the suspect had a criminal record. Mr. Porter said that Uber in Lebanon only used taxi drivers with commercial licenses, which require government background checks.
He added that Uber had also carried out a background check, which had come back clean. The ride-hailing company had reviewed the suspect’s short employment history, he said, and had not found anything suggesting concerns for safety.
The National News Agency of Lebanon said the driver, identified only as Tarek H., had confessed to killing Ms. Dykes.
