A BRITISH woman working abroad was raped and brutally murdered by an Uber driver before he dumped her body, an inquest has heard.
Rebecca Dykes, 30, was picked up by Tariq Houshieh in December 2017 following a “girl’s night out” at a popular tourist bar in Beirut, Lebanon.
But after she got into the cab, Houshieh raped her, strangled her to death with a cord from his hoodie and dumped her body by the side of the road.
Rebecca had been working for the Department for International Development helping Lebanon to cope with refugees from the war in Syria.
Her body was found near a road on December 16, 2017, with choke marks around her neck.
A source told how her fate was sealed when she got into the taxi and the driver saw her wearing a short skirt.
Houshieh was handed a death sentence in 2019 – but is appealing to have it commuted, reports MyLondon.
