One Dead, 10 Injured After Van Rams Into Crowd At London Mosque

Several bunches of flowers had been deposited outside the mosque as commuters went to work on Monday morning. Eight of the injured were taken to hospitals, police said.

"All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene", she said, according to the BBC. A vehicle struck pedestrians near a mosque in north London early Monday morn. "The Muslim Community in this area is horrified at this incident and is concerned and shocked at the events". The man died but it was not clear if his death was due to the van attack.

The prime minister, who has been criticized for failing to show compassion to victims, traveled to the attack site within hours, and met with community and faith leaders.

Witnesses described him as white, with tattoos, while police later confirmed they had arrested a 48-year-old on suspicion of attempted murder, they added they were not looking for anyone else.

The use of a vehicle to mow down pedestrians drew horrifying parallels with the London Bridge attack, when three men drove a van into pedestrians before embarking on a stabbing spree, as well as with another auto and knife rampage in Westminster in March.

However, Osorio felt his side would have been hard done by had Moreno not netted from a corner in second-half injury time . It took a while for both sides to settle but the first real action of interest was possibly the most contentious.

British Muslim leaders have requested additional security outside local mosques, according to The Guardian. This comes near the end of Ramadan, the holiest time of the year for Muslims. "I would urge everyone to remain calm and vigilant", Basu said.

A statement released by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) condemned what it described as a "terror attack".

"An attack on one community is an attack on all of us", Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said. Some in the area had tried to attack the man, but were fended off by those holding him and an imam from the mosque.

President Trump has taken to Twitter during previous terror attacks to make the case for tighter restrictions on travel from predominantly Muslim countries.

"My friends told me there were two other guys with him but they caught the driver", said Warfa. "This person was conscious. I want to kill all Muslims'".

All three were from the West Bank village of Deir Abu-Mashal, near the city of Ramallah , the Times of Israel reported . Elsewhere in the West Bank, a Palestinian "attempted to stab an Israeli" north of Hebron early Saturday, the army said.

But the attack also laid bare the frustrations of a community who believe they've been unfairly equated with extremists who have carried out atrocities in the name of Islam.

She added the attack on Muslims was as insidious and destructive to British values as the other recent terror attacks that were motivated by Islamic hatred.

Amid the angry screaming, people are heard trying to calm the crowd, one man saying: "Don't worry, officers are here". Parents are scared to send their children to evening prayers. After those attacks, the mosque was shut down and reorganized and has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade.

It is located a short walk away from Emirates Stadium, home of the Arsenal football club in north London.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was a "horrific terrorist attack" aimed at "innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan".

Believed to Have Died in London High-Rise Fire
Providing an update on the situation Monday morning, police said that the death toll may rise further. Cundy said the death toll may still change, but not as significantly as it has in recent days.

"My message to the Government is, the plans you have to change the police funding formula so London loses more money: don't do it". In March, Khalid Masood killed five after driving into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before stabbing a police officer in the grounds of the Houses of Parliament.
