The United States is considering closing its embassy in Havana in response to an alleged sonic attack on USA personnel in Cuba, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Sunday.
"We have it under evaluation", Tillerson told CBS News' "Face The Nation".
Dickerson asked Tillerson about a letter sent by five Republicans senators asking the State Department to expel Cuban diplomats stationed in the US and to consider shutting down the Havana embassy, which President Obama re-opened in August 2015 after being closed for 54 years.
Washington says at least 16 employees at its Havana embassy - which fully reopened in 2015 after a half-century breakdown in diplomatic relations - were injured in a series of incidents that began previous year. Five Canadians were also affected.
Cuba, the United States and Canada have investigated the attacks, but the probe has not yielded any answers about how they were carried out or who was responsible for them.
The American Foreign Service Association - the labor union representing USA diplomatic and global aid personnel - spoke to 10 of those who received treatment and said their diagnoses included mild traumatic brain injury and permanent hearing loss. The U.S. State Department has not blamed Havana for the attacks but asked two Cuban diplomats to leave Washington in May.
