Diplomats in Cuba suffered traumatic brain injuries, records show

My neighbors attack me with noise in the audible range. Don't know what kind sound their music creates outside the audible range.

U.S. and Canadian diplomats in Cuba suffered mild traumatic brain injury and likely damage to their central nervous system in an incident that has been linked to a sonic attack.

Medical records said doctors had discovered signs of the damage after patients complained about hearing loss, nausea, headaches and balance problems, CBS News reported.

More than 10 U.S. and 5 Canadian diplomats in Havana began experiencing "a variety of physical symptoms" in the fall of 2016, according to the State Department.

The symptoms have been traced to a sonic attack — a deliberate use of a sonic device operating outside of the audible range — on diplomatic residences in Havana.

Cuban authorities have vowed to investigate the injuries amid pressure from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Some diplomatic tours of duty have also been cut short as a result of the incident.
