Canada sends home families of diplomats posted in Cuba

From BBC - April 16, 2018

The Canadian government has recalled families of its diplomatic staff in the Cuban capital, Havana.

The move comes as 10 Canadians continue to show unexplained brain symptoms, government officials said.

The Canadians, including some minors, have suffered from dizziness, nausea and difficulty concentrating.

A report by a Canadian medical specialist says that a new type of brain injury may be the cause of a mysterious illness.

Staff at the US embassy in Havana were similarly affected when the injuries surfaced last year.
