One was detained and two left the scene, the witnesses said.

He said: "When I drove past slowly I could count three people on the floor and police were performing CPR on one of them".

"Police say incident has all the "hallmarks" of a terrorist" incident.

Miqdaad Versi, assistant secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said the van had deliberately swerved into a group of people who were helping a man who was ill and had fallen to the ground. Police said he was already receiving first aid when the attack unfolded. Eight people injured were taken to three separate hospitals; two people were treated at the scene for minor injuries. Two of them ran away.

We sent over 60 medics to the scene, including ambulance crews, advance paramedics and specialist responses teams and an advance trauma team from London's Air Ambulance, said the service's Deputy Director of Operations, Kevin Bate. They must be somewhere around Finsbury Park. Around 10% of the borough's population is Muslim.

London's Grenfell Tower May Have Used Banned Exterior Cladding in Renovation
During her visit - which lasted less than an hour - she also spoke to volunteers and community leaders at St Clement's Church. The mayor of London Sadiq Khan has said the Grenfell Tower disaster was a outcome of years of neglect by politicians.

He said: "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 mosque was shut down and reorganized in 2005 and has not been linked to extremist views.

Since then the community has transformed the mosque into a centre of generosity with a "relaxed atmosphere".

The new exterior cladding used in a renovation on London's Grenfell Tower may have been banned under United Kingdom building regulations, two British ministers said Sunday as police continued their criminal investigation into the inferno that killed at least 58 people. I am grateful to our emergency services, who responded quickly and have been working on the scene throughout the night.

The suspected terror attack took place in Finsbury Park, North London. The mosque called it a "callous terrorist attack". He complained that the "mainstream media" was unwilling to call the attack a terrorist incident for many hours.

Some witnesses at the scene said more than one attacker may have been involved.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said that his thoughts and prayers were with the victims of the "horrific terrorist attack".

Witnesses claimed people were also attacked by a knife-wielding man but the Met said there had been no reports of anyone suffering stab wounds.

- The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said "the appalling attack on Muslims in Finsbury Park is an attack on us all and on the culture and values of our country".

"I'm totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park tonight".

Charl Schwartzel part of three-way tie for midway lead in Memphis
Schwartzel should open Round 3 as the favorite given the lack of in-form players around him near the top of the leaderboard. Unfortunately for the future Hall of Famer, a triple-bogey seven on the par-4 12th hole knocked him out of contention.

"There has been this concern within the community, this concern within the mosque itself particularly over the years as it has worked to try and reshape its reputation to try and shed that reputation for extremism, for contributing to extremist thought, ideology and indeed perhaps violent acts".
