What's attacking U.S. citizens in Cuba?The blaring, grinding noise jolted the American diplomat from his bed in a Havana hotel. came the hearing loss, and the speech problems, symptoms both similar and altogether different from others among at least 21 U.S. victims in an astonishing international mystery still unfolding in Cuba. The top U.S. diplomat has called them "health attacks". New details learned by the Associated Press indicate at least some of the incidents were confined to specific rooms or even parts of rooms with laser-like specificity, baffling U.S. officials who say the facts and the physics don't add up.Some victims now have problems concentrating or recalling specific words, several officials said, the latest signs of more serious damage than the U.S. government initially realized. The United States first acknowledged the attacks in August – nine months after symptoms were first reported.Fewer than 10 Canadian diplomatic households in Cuba were affected, a Canadian official said.After the U.S. complained to Cuba's government earlier this year and Canada detected its own cases, the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police traveled to Havana to investigate.The U.S. hasn't stopped sending new diplomats to Cuba even as the victim list grows.
