U.S. lawmakers want retaliation for acoustic incidents in Cuba

Reuters Staff

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group of Republican U.S. senators called on Friday for Washington to retaliate for an alleged “acoustic attack” on U.S. personnel in Cuba by expelling Cuban diplomats and possibly closing the U.S. embassy in Havana.

The U.S. State Department said in August that Americans linked to the embassy in the Cuban capital have experienced physical symptoms caused by unspecific “incidents” starting as far back as late 2016.

Cuba has denied involvement in the incidents. The U.S. State Department did not immediately response to a request for comment.


In a letter, the five Republicans - Senators Tom Cotton, Richard Burr, John Cornyn, Marco Rubio and James Lankford - urged Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to remind the Cuban government of its responsibility toward diplomats.
