White man plows van into crowd by London mosque; 10 injured

19 Juin, 2017, 20:34 | Author: Cyril Hebras

"This morning, our country woke to news of another terrorist attack on the streets of our capital city: the second this month and every bit as sickening as those which have come before", Ms May said outside her Downing Street office.

The prime minister condemned the attack and said "hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed".

"There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park mosque that seemed to have hit people who were coming out after prayers had finished".

Basu said one man was pronounced dead at the scene but it was too early to confirm whether he was killed as a result of the terror attack.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said: "This is being treated as a terrorist attack".

Flowers have been laid near the scene, with one card reading: "This is an attack on all Londoners - and on my community". Police said he was already receiving first aid when the attack unfolded.

Hasm said he and others attempted to get the driver out of the vehicle "but before we get him out of the auto he started fighting with us and spitting with us". He has been taken to hospital as a precaution and will be taken into custody once discharged.

The Muslim Council of Britain confirmed that worshippers had been targeted in the attack.

Police had arrested the driver after the incident and Scotland Yard said there were no other suspects.

British security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with official policy, said hate crimes directed at Muslims have increased almost five-fold in the wake of several attacks in Britain.

Today's attack marks the fourth terrorist incident in the United Kingdom in four months, after attacks in Westminster, Manchester and on London Bridge.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan called the incident a "horrific terror attack".

A witness told CNN's Phil Black the van "came to a stop, and that's when they were able to apprehend the driver. they were able to pull him out".

An imam guarded the van driver who mowed down Muslim worshippers until the police arrived, telling a crowd: "Do not touch him". He said police had instructed him not to speak to the media.

- The Prime Minister said police chose to treat the incident as a terror attack within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call.

- Police say they believe there was only one man in the van.

"I held him, he was screaming before that he was saying "I'm going to kill all Muslims".

Ali Habib, a 23-year-old student, said residents are angry that the mosque attack hasn't been portrayed in the same light as other attacks across Britain.

After meeting faith leaders at Finsbury Park Mosque on Monday afternoon, she said: "The bad terrorist attack which took place last night was an evil borne out of hatred and it has devastated a community".

"Eight people injured were taken to three separate hospitals; two people were treated at the scene for minor injuries". A tweet from the MCB said: "We have been informed that a van has run over worshippers as they left #finsburyparkmosque". Mahmoud said he hoped that people would continue to unite against extremism.

She has faced heavy criticism for her response to a fire in a London tower block last Wednesday which killed at least 58 people, and for her record on security after a series of attacks blamed on Islamist militants in recent months.

It also follows a suicide bombing at a concert in Manchester in May that killed 22. All of the casualties were Muslims, police say.
