The number of people killed in the Brussels terror attacks last week has been revised downwards to 32.

"After thorough verification: number of victims goes down to 32. Still 94 people in hospital," Health Minister Maggie de Block tweeted.

94 people are still in hospital, some in a serious condition, following the suicide bombings at the city's airport and at a metro station.

Some of the confusion about who died was caused because details of victims were duplicated.

All victims have now been identified. 17were Belgian nationals and 15 were foreign.
