"At that moment in time, basically a van swerved into them deliberately", he said, citing a witness at the scene.

London police said in a statement that one death has been confirmed and eight people were injured and taken to nearby hospitals.

"The British Muslim community requires all decent people to stand with us against this evil violence", he said, adding that "rampant Islamophobia has been on the rise for a number of years".

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

- London Mayor Sadiq Khan called the incident "a horrific terrorist attack".

British Prime Minister, Teresa May said she would chair an emergency response meeting later on Monday morning. It has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade. "Everybody was shouting: "A van's hit people, a van's hit people", she said. The statement from her office said her thoughts were with the injured, their loved ones and emergency services who responded to the scene. "We're being held some distance away from where the van was", said Phil Black on CNN, as footage from the pre-dawn hours showed a line of uniformed police, flashing lights and passers-by milling around, and little else in the frame. Sky News reported that the mosque's imam prevented the crowd from beating the attacker until police arrived.
