Four Americans confirmed killed in Brussels attacks, death toll at 35

Four Americans are confirmed to have been killed in last week's terror attacks in Brussels, the State Department said late Sunday.

A State Department official confirmed the deaths of two additional U.S. citizens in a brief statement, but declined to identify them. The statement expressed "our deepest condolences" to those who had lost loved ones. The department initially said Friday that two Americans had died in the attacks.

Over the weekend, married couple Justin and Stephanie Shults were confirmed to have been killed in the bombings at Brussels' Zaventem Airport. A family member told the Associated Press they were dropping Stephanie's mother off at the airport and were watching her walk through security when the bombs went off.

President Barack Obama telephoned the couple's parents earlier Sunday. The White House said Obama offered his condolences and praised Justin and Stephanie Shults as epitomizing all that was good about America.
