Brussels bomb survivor back home

Broken windows of the terminal at Brussels national airport

MARIEL Voutounou, the Cypriot injured during the Brussels terrorist attacks last month, returned home on Friday after being treated for her injuries at a military hospital.

Voutounou, who had been injured in the Zaventem airport explosion, underwent minor surgery for facial burns before flying back to Cyprus.

Speaking on state radio, Voutounou extended warm thanks to the Cypriot embassy in Brussels, particularly ambassadors Cornelios Corneliou and Antonis Grivas, for their immediate response and care for her and her family.

She had been flying to New York, with a transit stop in Brussels, when the terrorist attack left her with non-life threatening injuries.
