Three Mormon missionaries were injured in the explosions at Brussels Airport Tuesday morning.

The three missionaries from Utah, Elder Richard Norby, 66, of Lehi, Elder Joseph Empey, 20, of Santa Clara, and Elder Mason Wells, 19, of Sandy were accompanying sister Fanny Rachel Clain, 20, of Montélimar, France to the airport.

Norby, Empey, and Wells were all close to the explosions in the departure gates at Brussels Airport.

Clain was serving in that mission while waiting for a permanent visa to the US.

The First Presidency of the Church released this statement this morning:

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.
