UK police: Mosque attack suspect held on terror charges

20 Juin, 2017, 18:17 | Author: Claudine Rigal

One man, who was already ill and receiving CPR on the side of the road as the attack occurred, passed away after the incident.

Witnesses have described hearing the van driver, who was detained by members of the public at the scene, saying he had wanted to kill Muslims.

It said searches were being carried out at a residential address in the Cardiff area in Wales.

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.

Osborne's Muslim neighbour in Cardiff, Khadijh Sherazi, said she had never had any problems with him or his family until this weekend.

British health authorities say seven people remain hospitalized after a driver plowed into a crowd spilling out of north London mosques after Ramadan services.

"Over the past weeks and months, Muslims have endured many incidents of Islamophobia and this is the most violent manifestation to date", said Harun Khan, head of the Muslim Council of Britain. Video shows Osborne telling the men restraining him to "kill me".

Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the incident as "every bit as sickening" as the recent atrocities in London and Manchester. The man has died, but it is unclear whether this was as a result of the attack.

However, as he tried to flee from the scene a group of men chased after him and were filmed pinning the suspect to the floor before dragging him along the road.

A father-of-four has been identified as the suspect behind the latest London terror attack.

"I would like to ... thank our imam, Mohammed Mahmoud, whose bravery and courage helped calm the immediate situation after the incident and prevented further injuries and potential loss of life", said Toufik Kacimi, the chief executive of the Muslim Welfare House.

"At this stage in the investigation, it is believed that the suspect acted alone but we are of course investigating all the circumstances leading up to the attack", the Metropolitan police said in a statement.

There, he is accused of mounting the pavement just yards from the Finsbury Park Mosque and mowing down a group of British Muslims who had been helping an unwell man.

"This was quite clearly an attack on Muslims who looked like they were probably Muslims and they were coming from a prayer meeting", said the Met police commissioner, Cressida Dick.

Another eyewitness, who gave his name as Athman, told AFP: "While he was in the police van he was waving for victory, he was very happy".
