Driver plows van into Muslims leaving London mosque in suspected terror attack

The Metropolitan Police confirmed that the 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

The footage obtained by LBC shows chaotic scenes after the terror attack, which targeted Muslims, that took place early on Monday morning. "Our priority is to assess the level and nature of injuries and ensure those in the most need are treated first and taken to hospital", he said.

The Prime Minister said that police were able to respond to initial reports of an incident within one minute, and were treating it as a terrorist incident within eight minutes.

In a statement, May said the "hatred and evil" of the kind seen in the attack would never succeed.

British police said the incident was being investigated as a terror attack, which would make it the fourth such attack since March, including two van ramming and stabbing attacks on and near London Bridge, and a bomb attack outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

"By God's grace, we managed to surround him and to protect him from any harm", Mahmoud said.

Witnesses said a white van struck a crowd of Muslim worshippers who had been attending evening prayers during the holy month of Ramadan and were looking after a man who had collapsed.

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

Another witness said: "The van was driving towards us to try and basically hit us at speed".

The suspect "was very quickly and calmly given over to the police", Basu said, as he praised the community for their bravery.

"This big van just came and went all over us", witness Abdulrahman Saleh Alamoudi told BuzzFeed News. "I'm going to kill all Muslims".

He said doctors have turned down Mr Scalise's sedation levels enough that he has been able to respond to visiting family members. Trump, in a video message played at the game, said the event had "a much deeper level of meaning" because of the shooting .

A Twitter post on the account of Muslim Engagement and Development, a nonprofit organization that fights Islamophobia and encourages British Muslims to get more involved in media and politics, said, "Our prayers and thoughts with those injured outside Muslim Welfare House in Seven Sisters road hit by a van mounting pavement".

"Sending love and prayers to the victims in #FinsburyPark London".

"And then the imam of the mosque actually came out and said: "Don't hit him, hand him over to the police, pin him down".

Earlier this month, three men who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State terrorist group, rammed a van into pedestrians on London Bridge before stabbing passers-by, killing eight.

Britain's terrorist alert level is now at "severe", the second-highest level, meaning an attack is highly likely.

Police said they had deployed extra policing resources "to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan".
