NEW YORK (AP) — The family of two New York City siblings says authorities confirmed they died in the bombings in Brussels.

Belgian authorities and the Dutch Embassy positively identified the remains of Alexander and Sascha Pinczowski.

The information was issued Friday by James Cain on behalf of the Pinczowski family. Cain is the father of Alexander’s fiancee, Cameron Cain.

He says the family is “grateful to have closure on this tragic situation.”

Cain says Alexander was on the phone at the Brussels airport with his mother in Holland on Tuesday when the line went dead.

He says the siblings were Dutch nationals who had lived in the U.S. for some time.
