The U.S. has expelled 15 Cuban diplomats, saying Havana failed to protect US diplomats from mysterious acoustic attacks.

The State Department claimed that the move taken was in response to what U.S. officials call a series of unexplained attacks that have sickened twenty-two American diplomats in Havana.

Cuba’s Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, said he would protest the order – which he branded “unjustified… unfounded and unacceptable”.

“By these politically motivated and thoughtless actions, the U.S. government is responsible for the current and possibly future deterioration of bilateral relations,” he said.

Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said that the order will ensure equity in their respective diplomatic operations.

The Cuban diplomats have been given seven days to leave.
