British embassy employee found murdered in Lebanon

A Lebanese security official says the body of a woman found on the side of a road east of Beirut has been identified as a staffer in the British embassy in Lebanon.

A British embassy spokesperson confirms that a British woman had died and that they were contacting her family. They spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations.

A forensic official says authorities are investigating the exact cause of the woman’s death, and whether she was sexually assaulted. He said she had been strangled with a rope.

The security official says the woman was found yesterday by the side of a highway east of Beirut. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak to reporters.
