All Brussels attack casualties identified; number down to 32

A week after the triple bombing attacks on Brussels, all casualties have been identified, state prosecutors say, while bringing the total number of victims down to 32.

Of those, 17 were Belgian and 15 had foreign nationalities.

The revision in the number of deaths - which does not include the three suicide bombers - is due to the fact that three casualties were listed both among those who died at the crime scenes and those who later died in hospital, officials say.

No minors were killed in the attacks.
