Former Minnesota Lawmaker In Brussels Sheltering With Children
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Minnesota Rep. Ryan Winkler, who now lives in Brussels, says the deadly attack in Belgium's capital destroyed parts of the city he and his family had visited hours earlier.
Winkler says his wife on Monday flew out of the airport where the first explosions took place. And he flew into the same airport from Minnesota on Sunday.
About an hour later Tuesday, another bomb exploded on a rush-hour subway train near the European Union headquarters. Winkler says that's also a place they frequent between their home and the center of the city.
While his wife is in Copenhagen, Winkler is at home with their children who are on a break from school.
The attacks have left at least 31 people dead and dozens of others injured.
