Earlier this month, the U.S. disclosed there had been another occurrence in Aug after formerly observant the attacks had stopped.
It’s probable the series could grow even aloft as some-more cases are discovered. State Department mouthpiece Heather Nauert pronounced the U.S. continues to consider American personnel.
The U.S. adults were members of the American tactful community, the U.S. said. Officials have pronounced formerly that the incidents, deemed “health attacks” by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, influenced diplomats posted to the Embassy in Havana along with family members who live with them.
