Vehicle collides with pedestrians in Finsbury Park

Vehicle collides with pedestrians in Finsbury Park

The attacks were a factor in campaigning ahead of the June 8 election, with May criticised for overseeing a drop of 20,000 in the number of police officers in England and Wales as interior minister from 2010 to 2016.

The names of the victims have not yet been released, but expect more information in the upcoming days.

A white man with black hair was seen being detained by police officers.

Muslim Council of Britain secretary general Harun Khan condemned the attack and also urged calm.

The witness said: "Literally within a minute, a van with speed turned to where we were and ran over the man who was laying on the floor". Eight other people were taken to hospital, two of whom were seriously injured, he said.

"I was busy with a man who tried to escape".

- Two people were treated at the scene, May said, and eight others have been taken to three hospitals.

The Muslim Council tweeted that worshippers were struck by a van as they were leaving prayers near the Finsbury Park mosque.

Van hits London mosque crowd in latest 'terror' attack
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. "Basically, a van swerved into them deliberately", Versi said.

The attack will stretch the capacity of authorities in Britain, who have faced four attacks in recent months, together with a major fire that has killed dozens. "Our prayers are with the victims".

"Some big van ... crushing the people in the mosque".

- Two eyewitnesses tell CNN they saw three men in the van. Police said earlier that one person was arrested.

Hamza was the imam of Finsbury Park Mosque from 1997 until 2003, when he was expelled by the Charity Commission, having been suspended in 2002. According to the 2011 Census, half the population in the borough aged under 25 are from nonwhite ethnic backgrounds.

Police had said hate crimes had risen after the London Bridge attack and they had stepped up their visible presence at places of worship.

Manchester was also hit by a severe attack when a bomber killed more than 20 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

- How did Muslim groups react? It was a lot of police, a awful scenario really - I hope it will never happen again. "And that reputation may be more historical than current", he said. Night comes pretty late in London this time of year.

Opened in 1994, Finsbury Park Mosque is an unassuming five-story redbrick building in residential north London, close to Arsenal Football Club's Emirates Stadium.

Counter-terrorism officers are investigating, and the Met Police have confirmed: "This is being treated as a terrorist attack ". She said her thoughts were with the injured, their loved ones and emergency officials who responded to the incident.

At one time it was associated with extremism, due to its links with Egyptian-born radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri in the early 2000s.

In 2012, he was extradited to the United States where was found guilty of 11 terrorism charges and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. "I'm going to kill all Muslims".

Transportation officials said roads in the area were being closed.

The Metropolitan Police said the investigation of the incident is being carried out by the Counter Terrorism Command.

As with many areas on the fringes of central London, gentrification has seen the arrival of gourmet coffee shops and refurbished bars.

Another witness, Ratib Al-Sulaman, told CNN: "There's a lots of people from Nigeria, from Tunisia from Morocco, from the Arab countries. They were helping on the pavement and trying to help them to get away from the scene". "We must allow the police to deal with the fact, and they will make sure they make those facts available as soon as they can".

One video shows injured people lying on the ground and a man performing first aid on the injured.

She added: "Everybody was clamoring around and shouting at the man". My friend said he said some words, but I didn't hear it.
