German police confirmed Friday an investigation into an “alleged sonic attack” targeting U.S. Embassy staff in Berlin, who are among the roughly 200 cases of a mysterious illness reported by U.S. diplomats and intelligence officers stationed around the world.

As of August, at least two U.S. government employees based in Germany have logged symptoms such as dizziness, nausea and severe headaches, according to numerous media reports. These are among the signs of “Havana Syndrome,” an affliction named after the Cuban capital where such cases were first reported.
