A recording of the high-pitched noise heard by some U.S. Embassy workers during a series of deliberate attacks in Havana, Cuba, has been released.
The recording was obtained by the Associated Press and has led investigators to initially suspect that a sonic weapon was used to conduct ongoing attacks, starting last year. At least 22 Americans are confirmed to have been medically affected by the State Department.
The attacks have caused hearing, cognitive, visual, balance, and sleep problems among the victims.
The video released by the AP has been enhanced digitally to reduce background noise and increase volume.
The recordings from Havana have been sent for analysis to the U.S. Navy, according to the AP. The Navy did not respond to requests from the AP for comment on the recording. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert would also not comment on the tape’s authenticity.
Although one individual confirmed hearing the sound, the exact sounds have not been confirmed by every individual impacted by the attacks.
