Biden administration preparing to compensate some 'Havana syndrome' victims up to $200,000

Tourists ride classic convertibles in Havana, Cuba, in October 2017. Some victims of the mysterious "Havana syndrome" are expected to be paid between $100,000 and $200,000 from the US government.

Some victims of the mysterious "Havana syndrome" are expected to be paid between $100,000 and $200,000 from the US government -- based on the extent of their injuries and which department they work for -- according to two congressional aides familiar with administration deliberations and a former intelligence official.

Dating back to at least 2016, US diplomats, spies and service members around the globe have been struck with a mysterious set of symptoms now colloquially known as Havana syndrome. While the US intelligence community has so far been unable to determine what -- or who -- is causing the spate of injuries, the Biden administration has been under increasing pressure to provide support to victims, some of whom are struggling with steep medical costs and loss of employment due to their injuries.
