US alert after American in China suffers brain injury caused by sound



WASHINGTON: A new form of hostility and warfare appears to be surfacing in the world with the Trump administration on Tuesday sounding an alarm about possible sonic attacks against its citizens after a US government employee in China reported unusual “sensations of sound and pressure,” and, on his return to America, was diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury.




The case, the first that Washington has reported out of China, is reminiscent of a wave of so-called “sonic attacks” on US diplomats in Cuba that resulted in the withdrawal of a large number of American personnel, including many who complained of symptoms like hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, visual difficulties, headaches and fatigue.


American officials said no other case had been reported from China but "the US government is taking these reports seriously and has informed its official staff in China of this event."
