Several casualties reported after van hits pedestrians in north London

"It appears that a white man in a van intentionally ploughed into a group of worshippers", the council said in a statement. He will be given a mental health evaluation.

"We don't yet know the full details, but this was clearly a deliberate attack on innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan". The van driver tried to escape but people grabbed him.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing police give emergency heart massage to at least one of the injured.

The Muslim Council of Britain claimed on Twitter it "had been informed that a van has run over worshippers" as they left the mosque.

While there is no official confirmation of how many people have been injured, the police and the Ambulance Service have said there are a number of casualties.

London police investigating incident of collision with pedestrians
A vehicle hit pedestrians in London's Finsbury Park community, causing " a number of casualties ", according to authorities. At least one man has died and 10 people have been injured after a " potential terrorist attack " in London overnight.

The chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque says the van crash that hit worshippers was a "cowardly attack" and urged Muslims going to mosques to be vigilant. The mosque, which today operates largely as a community center, rose to worldwide notoriety in the early 2000s, due to its links with Egyptian-born radical cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has expressed her grief and said her thoughts were with all those injured in the incident.

Britain set its terror at "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely, after a pair of incidents recently.

The incident comes just over two weeks after three Islamist militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people at nearby restaurants and bars, killing eight.

Both the long silence of the police and the cautious way in which the media treated the attack was in stark contradiction with the way the same media reports on attacks in which the perpetrators are Muslims. There was a lot of people.
