September 12, 2018

WASHINGTON: Russia is the main suspect in US agencies’ investigation of mysterious illnesses in American personnel in Cuba and China, NBC News reported on Tuesday.

Evidence from communications intercepts has pointed to Moscow’s involvement during the investigation involving the FBI, CIA and other agencies, NBC reported, citing three unidentified US officials and two other people briefed on the probe.

The evidence, however, is not conclusive enough for the United States to assign blame publicly to Moscow, according to the NBC report.

The FBI said it did not have a comment on the NBC report.

A US government source familiar with official assessments said intelligence agencies would not confirm the report.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Tuesday, “We have made no determination on who or what is responsible for the health attacks.”
