BRUSSELS (AP) -

A Brussels prosecutor (Ine Van Wymersch) says 24 of the 31 people killed in the Brussels attacks have now been identified.
    
He tells The Associated Press that 11 of them were foreigners.
    
One was former Belgian ambassador to the United States, Andre Adam. He served as Belgium's ambassador during part of the Clinton administration. He also served at the United Nations during a long career that began in 1962.
    
Of the 270 wounded, 93 are being treated at a Brussels military hospital. A doctor there says 15 people are in a serious burns unit, five of them in intensive care.
    
Dr. Serge Jennes says he had treated similar injuries during his service in Kandahar, southern Afghanistan, but that he and his colleagues have been shocked to see such injuries on women and children.
    
He said almost all the wounded had burst eardrums.
