Diplomats sue over Havana Syndrome


Canadian diplomats who were posted to Cuba are suing their government, claiming it failed to protect them and to respond robustly to a mysterious illness they acquired while stationed there. The illness, known as Havana Syndrome, has affected dozens of American and Canadian diplomats posted to Cuba, some of whom have come down with symptoms like memory loss, sleep disturbanc­e and nosebleeds, after saying they heard a strange high-pitched sound. The suit says the Canadian government has been too slow to respond and did not provide sufficient medical treatment.
