A New York-based brother and sister were among those killed during this week's Brussels attacks, a family spokesman confirmed Friday. Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski had just arrived at the Brussels Airport when two explosions went off Tuesday. They had not been seen since, but on Friday they were confirmed as having died in the twin blasts.
'We received confirmation this morning from Belgian authorities and the Dutch Embassy of the positive identification of the remains of Alexander and Sascha,' James Cain, former U.S. ambassador to Denmark and a spokesman for the family, said in a statement. 'We are grateful to have closure on this tragic situation, and are thankful for the loving support, thoughts and prayers from all.'
