The U.S. warned its citizens not to visit because of mysterious “attacks” that have caused hearing loss, dizziness and fatigue in U.S. embassy personnel.

“We consider the decision announced today by the U.S. government through the State Department is hasty and will affect bilateral relations,” Vidal said in a briefing broadcast on state-run television during the midday news show.
