Brussels Attack Victims Include at Least 2 Students

March 28, 2016

At least two university students were among the dozens killed in the terrorist attacks at the main airport and a subway station in Brussels last week. Howest University College on Friday announced the death of Bart Migom, a second-year marketing student. According to a New York Times profile, Migom, 21, was at the airport for a flight to Atlanta to visit his girlfriend, whom he described as his “Georgia peach” and “partner in Christ.” This article has been updated to delete a reference to the university attended by Migom's girlfriend, as reported by the Times, after the university said she was not currently enrolled. 

Earlier in the week the Université Saint-Louis in Brussels announced the death of Léopold Hecht, a law student, in the subway bombing. Hecht, 20, was remembered in the Times for his talent for acting and improvisational theater.
