Utah Missionaries Hurt In Brussels Attacks

Among those injured in Tuesday's terror attacks in Brussels are three Mormon missionaries from Utah, including one from Santa Clara, just north of St. George.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints reports 20 year old Joseph Emprey of Santa Clara was among those they described as "seriously injured" in the attacks. He and two other missionaries accompanying him – Richard Norby of Lehi and Mason Wells of Sandy – have been hospitalized.

The church said the three Utah missionaries were taking a French missionary to the Brussels airport when the attacks happened.
