6. A crisis over a mysterious ailment sickening American diplomats and their families — first reported in Cuba — is widening.
The State Department has evacuated several Americans who fell ill in Guangzhou, China, after hearing strange noises at their apartment complexes, officials said. One of the residences is pictured above.
Those stricken have reported headaches, nausea, hearing loss, cognitive issues and other problems. Last month, one worker was reported to have brain trauma. Others are being tested.
The new episode has prompted American officials to focus suspicion beyond Cuba, to perhaps China or Russia.
