The Washington Times Daily - - WORLD -

TORONTO | Canada is or­der­ing fam­i­lies of diplo­matic staff in Cuba to re­turn home amid ques­tions about mys­te­ri­ous health symp­toms de­tected in 10 peo­ple who were sta­tioned on the is­land.

The coun­try’s for­eign min­istry said in a state­ment Mon­day that Cana­dian diplo­mats will no longer be ac­com­pa­nied by fam­ily mem­bers in Cuba be­cause of what it called “on­go­ing un­cer­tainty” over the cause of the ail­ments.

The U.S. State Depart­ment cut staff at its em­bassy in Oc­to­ber be­cause of sim­i­lar symp­toms af­fect­ing 24 Amer­i­can diplo­mats and de­pen­dents.
