Medical mystery widens as U.S. diplomats fall ill in China

GUANGZHOU, China – A crisis over a mysterious ailment sickening U.S. diplomats and their families — which began in Cuba and recently appeared in China — widened on Wednesday. The State Department evacuated at least two more Americans who fell ill in China after hearing strange noises, officials said.

Many other employees at the U.S. Consulate in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou and their family members are also being tested by a State Department medical team that has been flown in, officials said. It is unclear how many of them are exhibiting symptoms, but officials expect more U.S. personnel to be evacuated.
