Two New Yorkers, siblings Sasha and Alexander Pinczowski lost their lives in Brussels attacks on Tuesday, as the statement of the New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo said on Friday. In the statement, Cuomo expressed condolences to the Pinczowski family.
In Brussels, where Secretary of State John Kerry arrived from Moscow to express the support from the U.S. to Belgium he confirmed that Americans were among those killed in Tuesday’s attacks in Belgium’s capital. Kerry said that he was grieving with “the loved ones of those who have been very cruelly taken from us-including Americans.”
National Public Radio says the Associated Press, citing an anonymous official, says the families of two Americans “have been notified of their deaths.”
Belgian Prime minister Charles Michel who met Kerry on Friday in Brussels said he wants to express his condolence for the American victim. “We know that we are facing a situation with more than 14 nationalities,” Michel said on the victims of the Tuesday’s attack. The authorities haven’t released details, NPR says, about the victims of the attack, but individuals or other countries shared some information. The first victim that was identified was from Peru.
