Texas native among those dead in Brussels attacks

A Southeast Texas native and wife of an Air Force lieutenant colonel was one of the people killed in the Brussels attacks.

Gail Minglana Martinez was identified Wednesday as a victim in the attacks by the office of U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold. The congressman said in a statement that he had spoken to Martinez's brother.

The 41-year-old Martinez's husband, Lt. Col. Kato Martinez, was stationed in the Netherlands. Kato Martinez and the couple's four children were being treated for injuries in the attacks.

Suicide bombers killed 32 people at Brussels' airport and in a subway station near the European Union headquarters. Dozens of people remain hospitalized.

Gail Martinez grew up in Corpus Christi, a city on the Gulf of Mexico southwest of Houston.
