The number of victims of the recent Brussels terrorist attacks has been reduced to 28, as three people, previously included in the death toll, are suicide bombers, Benoit Ramacker, spokesman for the Belgian government's Crisis Center said Sunday.

BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — On Tuesday, two suicide bombers blew themselves up in the departures hall of the Brussels international airport in the northeastern municipality of Zaventem and another explosion went off inside a subway car at the Maelbeek station near the EU institutions. More than 300 people were injured in the attacks.

Daesh has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

"The number of victims hasn't changed, it is still 31 people, but three of them are suicide bombers," Ramacker told RIA Novosti.

On Wednesday, Belgian Federal Prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw identified the Maelbeek suicide bomber as Khalid Bakraoui, and said his brother Ibrahim was one of the two perpetrators of the blasts in Zaventem.
