“We’ve brought some of those people home. It’s under review,” he said.

The Associated Press reported last week that United States officials are still searching for an explanation for the unexplained attacks, which have affected at least 21 diplomats working in Cuba.

Last week, five GOP senators urged the administration to shutter the embassy, saying Cuba failed to protect diplomats. Cuba has denied any involvement in the mysterious acoustic attacks, which left some Americans with permanent hearing loss and mild brain damage.
