Suspect in London van attack identified as Darren Osborne

London police say a 47-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder as well as attempted murder after a auto plowed into a crowd of pedestrians near a north London mosque.

Ten people were injured and a man also died at the scene after a van drove into a crowd of Muslim worshippers near a mosque in London in the early hours of Monday.

The man suspected of plowing a van into Muslims taking a break from late-night prayers in London has now been arrested on terror grounds, police said Monday. British media reports said that a crowd had gathered outside the mosque Sunday night to help an elderly worshiper who had collapsed; the man died after the attack, but it was unclear whether his death was due to the attack itself.

Mohammed Mahmoud told reporters: "We told them the situation - there's a man, he's restrained, he mowed down a group of people with his van and there is a mob attempting to hurt him and if you don't take him then, God forbid, he might be seriously hurt". "The attack unfolded whilst a man was receiving first aid from the public at the scene".

"He was shouting: "All Muslims, I want to kill all Muslims", another witness, Khalid Amin, told BBC television.

British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the attack "on innocent people" and declared that Britain would stop at nothing to defeat extremism.

The anti-fascist campaign group HOPE not hate has said it fears the United Kingdom is entering a cycle of "tit-for-tat violence. where the extremes feed off one another, and terror attack propels terror attack".

A further eight people were being treated across three London hospitals and two victims suffered minor injuries, the London Ambulance Service said.

Sister Nicola said she was "very sorry for what's happened", the Press Association reported. All of the victims were described as Muslim.

This time, however, the attacker appeared to have deliberately targeted Muslims.

Another witness, who gave his name as Athman, told AFP: "People were screaming: "It's a terrorist attack, it's an attack, this guy attacked us", and I had to run back and tried to save people who were still alive and giving water, helping the police".

The van which drove into worshippers near a north London mosque belongs to a Welsh hire firm.

Owners of the company today hit out at the "cowardly" attack using one of their vehicles hired more than 160 miles away.

Britain's terrorist alert has been set at "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely.

"We are aware that often following acts of terrorism incidents there can be an increase in hate crimes within our communities".

"There has been an outpouring of sympathy for all for the recent terror attacks but hardly a whisper on this attack", he said.

The MCB later said on Twitter that the incident occurred outside the Muslim Welfare House, which is near the mosque.

Early this month, in what police called a terror attack, three Muslim extremists in a van veered into pedestrians on London Bridge, before attacking people with knives in the nearby Borough Market.

They also confirmed they were carrying out searches at a residential address in the Cardiff area in connection with the attack.

Last month, a suicide bomber blew himself up outside a pop concert in Britain's third city of Manchester, killing 22 people, many of them children.
