American in China injured in ‘sonic attack’ similar to Cuba | USA News | Al Jazeera
US says embassy worker’s brain injury in China appears similar to those sustained by diplomats in Cuba ‘sonic attacks’.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said a brain injury sustained by an American official in a “sonic attack” in China was similar to those that affected US and Canadian diplomats in Cuba.
Pompeo’s remarks on Wednesday came hours after the US embassy in China issued a health warning to Americans living in the country an “unusual” auditory or sensory phenomena.
The embassy said a US government employee in the southern city of Guangzhou reported experiencing a “subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure”, which led to a mild brain injury.
