London vehicle hits pedestrians, police say 'number' of injuries

London's Finsbury Park- a closer look

London's Finsbury Park- a closer look

"We have been informed that a van has run over worshipers as they left #FinsburyPark Mosque".

It comes after two deadly Islamist attacks this year that used vehicles to ram pedestrians - one earlier this month in the London Bridge area and a March attack in which a man drove a auto into crowds on Westminster Bridge.

- One man was found dead at the scene, according to police, but it's not clear if he was killed during the attack.

He told The Sun last night: "Whoever did this, he did it to hurt people and it's a terrorist attack".

Witness Hussain Ali also claimed the suspect was smiling and waving as he brought carnage to Seven Sisters Road in Finsbury Park, north London. "I didn't see the attacker himself, although he seems to have been arrested, I did see the van". "I'm going to kill all Muslims". "There are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene", the Met Police said in a statement.

Mohammed Kozbar said the Muslim community is "in shock".

"When he went into the [police] van he made gestures, he was laughing".

According to the Independent, footage of the incident showed injured people motionless on the pavement as angry crowds surrounded a white man believed to be the driver.

A man leapt out of the van and stabbed at least one person, the Evening Standard newspaper said, citing witnesses.

One person was killed and ten injured when a hired van ploughed into Muslim worshippers leaving a mosque after late-night Ramadan prayers.

"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 was taken to hospital as a precaution and will undergo a mental health assessment.

Some witnesses initially reported seeing two other men fleeing the scene.

The Metropolitan Police said that one man was pronounced dead at the scene and eight others were injured.

Counter-terrorism police were called out to investigate the incident, which occurred in the Finsbury Park neighborhood just after midnight.

A leader of the Muslim Council of Britain called for extra security at mosques in light of the apparent attack.

Comey testified that not everyone on his Federal Bureau of Investigation team agreed he should. Comey confirmed that in his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week.

"Our community is in shock", he said, urging people attending prayers to remain vigilant, a warning that was echoed by police. "It appears from eyewitness accounts that the perpetrator was motivated by Islamophobia".

The incident comes towards the end of Ramadan, the holiest time of year for Muslims.

London mayor Sadiq Khan labelled the incident a "horrific terrorist attack on innocent people".

Prime Minister Theresa May issued a statement saying she would be chairing an emergency meeting on Monday morning and adding: "All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene".

One pedestrian said he had jumped out the way of the van.

"Some big van. crushing the people in the mosque". It's home to a staggering variety of nationalities and although it is undergoing a lot of gentrification ( a theatre has opened in recent years, a newly opened branch of the ubiquitous sandwich chain Pret A Manger), it is populated by people from all walks of life and retains a strong working-class flavour. "There were bodies around me". "He was really shouting and aggressive. he was just spitting on us", Hashi said. He was bleeding. My friend said he had to lift the van.

Two of them ran away. And then the guy came out of his van and I got him.
