Van hits London mosque crowd in latest 'terror' attack

The man who was being given first aid at the scene before the attack had died but it was not clear whether his death was directly linked.

Eight other injured people were taken to hospitals after the crash early Monday morning. But after that I heard people just screaming "terrorist attack, terrorist attack".

In a statement, London Metropolitan Police said " number of casualties [were] being worked on at the scene". May said her thoughts were with those injured in "this bad incident".

The police said it an investigation of the incident is being carried out by the counter terrorism command. A post mortem examination will be scheduled due course.

"It appears that a white man in a van intentionally ploughed into a group of worshippers who were already tending to someone who had been taken ill", the Council said in a statement.

"While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the awful attacks in Manchester, Westminster, and London Bridge it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom, and respect".

The van driver, described by eyewitnesses as a large white man, was detained by members of the public after the attack in Seven Sisters Road at 12.20am on Monday.

"From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside ..."

- Two eyewitnesses tell CNN they saw three men in the van.

A van rammed into a crowd as worshippers were leaving a mosque after Sunday night prayer in north London, during this, the holy month of Ramadan.

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. It also comes at a tumultuous time for the government with Britain starting complex divorce talks with the European Union and May negotiating with a small Northern Irish party to stay in power after losing her parliamentary majority following a snap election.

He told The Sun last night: "Whoever did this, he did it to hurt people and it's a terrorist attack". The mosque, which today operates largely as a community center, rose to worldwide notoriety in the early 2000s, due to its links with Egyptian-born radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri. I think it's significant that they had the reputation historically of being one of the most militant mosques in London. And then the guy came out of his van and I got him.

Abdulrahman claimed the driver said "Kill me" as he was being held on the ground by the crowd.

Britain has been hit by a series of attacks in recent months, including the van-and-knife attack on London Bridge on June 3. "He picked this area well and he knows Finsbury Park is predominantly a Muslim area".

One man could been seen giving CPR to a victim in the street while another man's head injury was treated with a makeshift dressing. "When he was running, he said, 'I want to kill more people, I want to kill more Muslims, '" he said.

On 22 May, Salman Abedi, a Manchester-born 22-year-old blew himself up at the end of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena.

However, a new board of trustees and management took over in February 2005, a year after Abu Hamza was arrested by British police, since when attendance has greatly increased among worshippers from various communities, according to the mosque's website.
