1 dead, 10 hurt in crash near mosque suspected as terrorism

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said extra police had been deployed to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan, describing the attack as "an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect".

Police also said he would be "subject of a mental health assessment in due course". One person was killed and 10 were hurt.

A man has been arrested after a van was driven into worshippers near a north London mosque.

Video posted online of the aftermath of Monday's attack showed a scene of chaos as people tried to help the injured.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

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

The Finsbury Park mosque was associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, but was shut down and reorganized.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the incident was being treated as "a potential terrorist attack" and that she would chair an emergency meeting later on Monday.

The Finsbury Park Mosque gained notoriety more than a decade ago for sermons by radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri, who was sentenced to life in a U.S. prison in January 2015 for his conviction on terrorism-related charges.

Police said they were called just after 12:20am (2320 GMT Sunday) to reports of a collision on Seven Sisters Road, which runs through the Finsbury Park area of north London.

The group's general secretary, Harun Khan, said that eyewitnesses saw the van driver hit a number of Muslims.

"During the night, ordinary British citizens were set upon while they were going about their lives, completing their night worship", he said. "It appears from eyewitness accounts that the perpetrator was motivated by Islamophobia", he said.

"They were very nervous, shouting very loud, trying desperately to make some signs to a police vehicle that was. just passing the road", she told CNN. Eight of the injured were taken to hospitals and the rest were treated at the scene.

The attack comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, when people attend prayers at night.

A group of people were helping a man who had collapsed when they were hit by the van just after midnight.

Britain's opposition Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn said in a statement that he was "totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park tonight". "My prayers are with the victims and their families", read the statement.

During Ramadan - the name of the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and the holiest time of their year - Muslims fast daily from dawn to dusk and focus on prayer, purification and acts of charity.

Transportation officials said roads were being closed in the area.

On 22 March, a man drove a rented vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a police officer guarding the British parliament to death before being shot dead.

Further details were not immediately available.
