Haven’t uncovered cause of ‘sonic attacks’ on US diplomats: Cuba

Havana, June 11: The Cuban government said that it has not uncovered the cause of mysterious health symptoms that affected an official of the US embassy here last month leading to Washington’s decision to withdraw personnel posted there. In a statement on Sunday, the Foreign Ministry said officials launched an investigation after learning an employee had “reported health symptoms as a result of ‘undefined sound’ in her place of residence”, reports CNN. According to the statement, authorities could not find the source of the sound. “After more than a year of research by the specialised agencies and experts from Cuba and the US, it is confirmed that there is no credible hypothesis or conclusions adhered to science that justify the actions taken by the government of the US against Cuba to the detriment of the bilateral relationship and with obvious political motivations,” it added.
