The injured missionaries, whose families have been notified, are:
- Elder Richard Norby (66) of Lehi, Utah
- Elder Joseph Empey (20) of Santa Clara, Utah
- Elder Mason Wells (19) of Sandy, Utah
The missionaries were taking Sister Fanny Rachel Clain (20) of Montélimar, France, to the airport. Sister Clain had been serving in that mission while awaiting a permanent visa for the United States.
All missionaries in the France Paris Mission have been asked to remain in their apartments.
The First Presidency of the Church promptly issued a statement this morning in response to the bombings:
With much of the world, we awoke this morning to the heartbreaking news of the bombings in Belgium. Our prayers are with the families of the deceased and injured, including three of our missionaries who were injured and hospitalized. We also pray for the people of Belgium and France as they continue to deal with the uncertainty and devastation caused by the recent terrorist attacks.
Notice to media: Because of difficulty in communications in Brussels, media are asked not to call the mission office and occupy phone lines. Information and updates will be posted on Mormon Newsroom as they become available.
