Van rams worshippers leaving London mosque, killing at least one

Though authorities have not released how many people were injured as a result of the van striking pedestrians, they have said that there are a "number of casualties".

Police said they were called just after 12:20 am on Monday, local time, and have arrested one man.

Prime Minister Theresa May said that the incident is being treated as a "potential 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.

The Muslim Council of Britain said the vehicle had hit people as they were leaving Finsbury Park mosque. Muslims now are observing Ramadan, during which they fast from dawn to dusk and engage in intense prayer and feast at sundown.

Transport for London said on Twitter that sections of Seven Sisters Road were closed due to an "emergency services incident". Calling it a major incident, the police said that they are investigating if it was accidental or deliberate.

Earlier this month, a van veered into pedestrians on London Bridge, with attackers then stabbing and slashing eight people to death and wounding many others on the bridge and in the nearby Borough Market area.

The scene is just metres from the main trunk railway line linking London with Edinburgh, the main Arsenal Football Club shop and what was the Rainbow Theatre, considered the prestige London concert venue in the 1960s and 1970s. Three Muslim extremists who carried out the attack were shot dead by police, as bar customers threw bottles and chairs to defend themselves.
