Canadian researchers say they may have identified the cause of a mystery illness which plagued diplomatic staff in Cuba in 2016.


Some reports in the US suggested an "acoustic attack" caused US staff similar symptoms, sparking speculation about a secret sonic weapon.


But the Canadian team suggests that neurotoxins from mosquito fumigation are the more likely cause.


The Zika virus, carried by mosquitoes, was a significant health concern at the time.

So-called "Havana syndrome" caused symptoms including headaches, blurred vision, dizziness and tinnitus.


It made international headlines when the US announced more than a dozen staff from its Cuban embassy were being treated.


Cuba denied any suggestion of "attacks", and the reports led to increased tension between the two nations.


In July, a US academic study showed "brain abnormalities" in diplomats working at the Cuban Consulate.
