Tillerson: Closing Cuba Embassy ‘under review’ after mysterious health attacks


Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Sunday that closing down the United States’ Embassy in Cuba is “under review” after diplomats working in the country suffered brain injuries.

“We have it under evaluation. It’s a very serious issue with respect to the harm that certain individuals have suffered,” Tillerson told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“We’ve brought some of those people home. It’s under review,” he said.

The Associated Press reported last week that United States officials are still searching for an explanation for the unexplained attacks, which have affected at least 21 diplomats working in Cuba.
