The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

OT­TAWA: Canada is re­call­ing the fam­i­lies of diplo­mats posted to Ha­vana, the gov­ern­ment said on Mon­day, as it con­tin­ues to in­ves­ti­gate “un­usual health symp­toms” af­fect­ing those as­signed there. While there had been no new cases since the sec­ond half of last year, fam­i­lies re­turn­ing to Canada had re­ported con­tin­ued symp­toms in­clud­ing dizzi­ness, headaches and in­abil­ity to con­cen­trate, Global Af­fairs Canada said. In some cases, symp­toms had ap­peared to “lessen in in­ten­sity, be­fore re­assert­ing them­selves”. It said diplo­mats posted to Cuba would be un­ac­com­pa­nied by their fam­i­lies. – dpa
