Van strikes worshippers leaving mosque

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

London Mayor Sadiq Khan called the incident a "horrific terrorist attack on innocent people" on social media.

Harun Khan, the head of the MCB, said the van had "intentionally" run over people who were leaving prayers held during the holy month of Ramadan.

In 2015 it was the target of an attempted arson when a white man with a jerrycan full of petrol tried to light it and throw it over the railings in front of the site before fleeing on a moped. The investigation into the matter will be conducted by counter-terrorism command, the police said.

The police described it as a "major incident", and are now investigating if it was an act of terror.

Many called the incident a terrorist attack, saying the driver had deliberately targeted Muslims. They were gathering in Seven Sisters Road. Images from the scene show a white van wedged against a traffic barrier at the end of a dead end street.

Mrs May added: "All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones and the emergency services on the scene".

Others suggested that the congregation of victims were trying to save a man who had collapsed at a bus stop. While the US has said since it began recruiting, training and advising what it calls moderate Syrian opposition forces to fight IS that it would protect them from potential Syrian government retribution, this was the first time it resorted to engaging in air-to-air combat to make good on that promise.

A van has reportedly mown down pedestrians near London Mosque.

Commenting on reports that the van driver also produced a knife, the statement went on: "At this stage there are no reports of any persons having suffered any knife injuries". "There was three people in the van".

At least one person has died and eight others are injured in an "Islamophobic" attack on Muslims leaving a London mosque.

Whether or not the incident was an intentional act of violence against the Muslim community has yet to be known. Around 10% of the borough's population is Muslim.

She said the road was "backed up" with police cars, ambulance and fire engines.London Ambulance Service deputy director of operations Kevin Bate said: "We have sent a number of ambulance crews, advance paramedics and specialist responses teams to the scene".

Earlier, the police said it was "too early" to say whether the incident was a terrorist attack.

"I think he done it on objective. And that reputation may be more historical than current", he said. "It wouldn't be odd that you would have large numbers of people breaking their fasts and praying at this time".

"I'm totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park tonight". He was accused of being linked with al-Qaeda and was arrested in 2004.

One man, who gave his name as Mohin, said his cousin was caught up in the incident.

The mosque has since undergone a series of high-profile reforms, including the installation of a new leadership board, led by the Muslim Association of Britain.

One eyewitness who lives nearby told the BBC she saw people "shouting and screaming".

The attacks were a factor in campaigning ahead of the June 8 election, with Prime Minister May criticised for overseeing a drop of 20,000 in the number of police officers in England and Wales as interior minister from 2010 to 2016.

On March 22, a man drove a rented vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a police officer guarding the British parliament to death before being shot dead.

She added: "I saw a lot of people injured". Anywhere from five to 11 people were mowed down, the witnesses said.
