20 Juin, 2017, 18:13 | Author: Claudine Rigal

"There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park mosque that seemed to have hit people who were coming out after prayers had finished". He was taken to a hospital as a precaution, where he'll receive a mental health assessment, according to the statement.

When he woke at about 1 a.m.to the sound of a helicopter circling overhead, Hornak said, his first thought was another terrorist attack.

- The driver of the van, a 48-year-old man, was held by people at the scene until police could arrest him.

The alleged attacker is now in custody, and a residence in Cardiff, Wales, is being inspected by the police as possibly associated with the incident.

Counter-terrorism police have joined regular police officers looking into the incident, the Guardian newspaper reported.

Finsbury Park Mosque also participated in the Great Get Together, hosting the Chief Rabbi for an Iftar dinner, which is a nightly breaking of the Ramadan fast for Muslims. The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said he was "totally shocked".

"Inquiries are continuing to establish whether there is any link between his death and the attack", police said. Ten people have been injured.

One man, who was already ill and receiving CPR on the side of the road as the attack occurred, passed away after the incident. The previous attacks had been blamed on Islamist extremists. "I don't want to say anything more".

"A number of passers-by, or friends, or people who had come by from the mosque, were gathering around him to help take him to his family, take him to his house", Versi told Reuters. Eight have been hospitalized.

Two were in a very serious condition, police said.

"We convey our honest condolence to the British people, wish God's mercy upon the person who lost his life in the attack, patience to his family and speedy recovery for the wounded", the statement said.
