BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese security forces have arrested a Lebanese taxi driver suspected of killing Rebecca Dykes, a British woman who worked at the British embassy in Beirut and was found dead on Saturday, a security source said.

The motive was purely criminal, not political, preliminary investigations showed, the security source said. Lebanese state media also reported a taxi driver had been arrested, citing a security source.
