HAVANA (Reuters) - Cuba's government said on Wednesday it would never allow actions against diplomats and their families on the island, after the U.S. State Department reported "incidents" had caused physical symptoms in Americans serving at the U.S. Embassy in Havana.

"Cuba has never, nor would ever, allow the Cuban territory to be used for any kind of action against accredited diplomats or their families," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

Earlier on Wednesday, the U.S. State Department said it had expelled two Washington-based Cuban diplomats in May after the unspecified "incidents" in Havana.
