An American diplomat and his wife said they were subjected to an acoustic attack in Uzbekistan, a former Soviet republic, according to a report.

CBS News confirmed that the couple reported the incident in September and was sent back to the United States for medical testing.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) worker and his wife apparently showed symptoms that were similar to the nearly two dozen U.S. diplomats in Cuba who were the victims of similar attacks from November 2016 through August 2017.

Both Russia and Cuba denied any involvement in the Cuba incident, and American officials have yet to determine who or what country was behind it. Uzbekistan remains close with Russia and, according to CBS, may rejoin the Collective Security Treaty Organization — a military alliance between Russia and several of its neighboring countries in eastern Europe.

Members of the U.S. intelligence community are looking at Cold War Soviet technology as they try to determine if Moscow was behind the attacks in Cuba and what exactly caused victims to experience dizziness, hearing loss, and brain injuries.

Twenty-two American diplomats reported symptoms after being stationed in Cuba.
