It was there that they became victims terrorist attacks at the museum in which 21 people were killed. One of those killed was a woman from the Antwerp suburb of Merksem. Her husband was hospitalised after being shot in the leg.
In Sunday’s press statement, the Foreign Ministry gave no information about the condition of the injured man, only stating that he had returned to Belgium on the same flight as his wife’s body.
