BRUSSELS (AP) – The Belgian health minister says four of those wounded in the suicide bombings last week have died in the hospital, bringing the number of victims of the bombings to 35.

The minister, Maggie De Block, made the announcement on her Twitter account Monday morning.

She posted: “Four patients deceased in hospital. Medical teams did all possible. Total victims: 35. Courage to all the families.”

Suicide bombers hit Brussels Airport and a city subway train on March 22 in an attack claimed by the Islamic State group.
