Back in the United States, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing Tuesday on a series of bizarre, unexplained health problems suffered by U.S. diplomats in Cuba. Officials originally said the health problems were caused by a likely “sonic attack.” But a new FBI report says there’s no evidence of sonic waves being used in an attack in Havana. At Tuesday’s Senate committee hearing, officials suggested the unexplained health problems might have been caused by an intentionally deployed virus. The Cuban government has denied any involvement in the alleged attack and says it’s helping to investigate the incidents.
