Approximately a dozen Americans were injured in the terrorist attacks in Brussels on Tuesday. State Department officials are working to account for all U.S. citizens on the ground.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner told CNN on Wednesday that “a dozen or so” Americans had been injured, though he was unable to confirm deaths of U.S. citizens.

A U.S. service member and his family were among those injured in the attack, U.S. European Command said Tuesday, though it did not provide more details on their injuries.
Authorities on Wednesday identified two brothers suspected of setting off suicide blasts at the Brussels airport and train station, while a third suspect was still on the run.
The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria claimed responsibility for the attack at the airport and metro station that left at least 34 people dead and more than 200 injured.
