The Latest on the Utah Mormon missionaries injured in the Brussels attacks (all times local):

10:40 a.m.

The governor of Utah is praising the three Mormon missionaries injured in the deadly attacks on the Brussels airport and subway.

A statement from Gov. Gary Herbert on Tuesday offered support to the families of 66-year-old Richard Norby, 20-year-old Joseph Empey and 19-year-old Mason Wells.

The men were serving in Paris and were seriously wounded at the Brussels airport where two explosions occurred. The attacks killed at least 31 people and wounded dozens.

Herbert praised the Utah natives as "people of faith who have forsaken everything — family, friends, school and careers — in order to share a message of hope and love with the world."

Thousands of Utah Mormons have served proselytizing missions around the world. Mormons account for as many as two-thirds of the state's population.

Mormon church officials say three missionaries from Utah were seriously injured in the Brussels airport terrorist attack.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement Tuesday identifying them as 66-year-old Richard Norby of Lehi, 20-year-old Joseph Empey of Santa Clara and 19-year-old Mason Wells of Sandy.

They were near the explosion when it occurred and have been hospitalized.

The three men were serving in Paris and were at the airport with a fourth missionary who was on her way to an assignment in Cleveland, Ohio.

The 20-year-old missionary, Fanny Rachel Clain, is from Montelimar, France.

It's unclear if her U.S.-bound flight took off.

At least 31 people were killed and nearly 190 wounded Tuesday after bombs went off in the Brussels airport.
