US is considering closing its embassy in Cuba



The US is considering closing its embassy in Cuba after diplomatic staff reported health problems which Washington blames on a "sonic attack".

 
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said a decision whether to shut to the mission in Havana was "under evaluation".


More than 20 staff suffered conditions ranging from mild brain trauma and hearing loss to dizziness and nausea.


US officials believe some kind of device was used to undermine their health. Cuba denies any involvement.
