A Chinese national was among those killed in a series of terrorist attacks carried out in Brussels on Tuesday, according to the Chinese embassy in Belgium.

The man, only identified by his surname, Deng, was in transport to another country from China and was changing planes in Brussels when two airport explosions took place. Deng had originally been reported as missing shortly following the attacks. Another series of suicide bombs took place in a subway car at Maelbeek station in the center of the city. ISIS has claimed responsibility for both attacks, and the bombings have been closely linked to November's deadly attacks in Paris.

The embassy reports that his family has been informed and that it will provide assistance if they wish to travel to the country. It also announced that a number of Chinese citizens still remain stranded in the Belgian capital following the closure of the airport.

The embassy expressed its condolonces and condemned the attack, which killed 31 people and injured more than 300. Among other nationalities killed in the attacks were two Americans and one Briton.
