Van Strikes Pedestrians Outside Mosque in London

19 Juin, 2017, 18:05 | Author: Marc Bacque

Almost a dozen people were injured a van crashed into pedestrians leaving a mosque in London.

Harun Khan, the head of the MCB, said the van had "intentionally" run over people leaving night prayers for the holy month of Ramadan. "One of them, he was under the van, people were gathered around the van to actually lift the van up to get this guy up from under the van". Ambulance crews said ten people had been transferred to hospital.

Police said the driver has been taken to hospital "as a precaution" and will undergo a mental health assessment.

One man, who was already being given first aid at the scene before the vehicle was driven into pedestrians, has died but police said it was not clear whether his death was directly linked. London Mayor, Sadiq Khan also called the incident a "horrific terrorist attack".

One person has been arrested but police have not said if the crash was deliberate or accidental.

Ms Rudd said: "Londoners have been hit with a series of attacks and have actually been nothing short of heroic".

A witness who lives opposite the scene of the incident told the BBC a white van stopped near the Finsbury Park Mosque, as Muslims celebrated Ramadan in the multiethnic area.

Footage has emerged of the moment the suspect in the Finsbury Park mosque attack was arrested by police.

While a 48-year-old man was arrested at the scene of the attack, according to the Met Police, some witnesses reported seeing three attackers, including two who fled the scene.

Opération policière en cours sur les Champs-Elysées
Vers 16 heures le 19 juin, un véhicule a percuté un fourgon de gendarmerie sur les Champs-Elysées à Paris, sans faire de blessés. Selon les informations de l'Express, un véhicule des forces de l'ordre a été touché.


The London Ambulance Service said it was responding to the incident.

Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the crash is being investigated as a terrorist attack and said her thoughts were with those who had been hurt in "this bad incident".

This account is at odds with the Metropolitan Police's official statement on the incident.

A young man who spoke to Sky News argued that if it had been a Muslim attacking others in the city, it would have been labelled terrorism more quickly, and he called for "equality" in the way both the authorities and media handle such incidents. The statement from her office said her thoughts were with the injured, their loved ones and emergency services who responded to the scene. "I call on all Muslims to be extra vigilant following these hateful Islamophobic attacks and to be cautious".

On March 22, a man drove a rented auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a policeman to death before being shot dead.

Witnesses claim the vehicle struck people as they were leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque.

The incident occurred in Seven Sisters road, north London at around 12:20am, outside the Muslim Welfare House.

"An advance trauma team from Londons Air Ambulance has also been dispatched by vehicle", the statement said. Manchester was also hit in May when a bomber killed more than 20 people at an Ariana Grande concert.
