Even After Being Attacked, London Imam Responds To Violence With Peace

Mrs May said the attack on Muslims in Finsbury Park was "every bit as insidious and destructive to our values and our way of life" as attacks motivated by Islamist extremism.

Police were called at 00:21hrs to Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park, to reports of a van colliding with pedestrians.

Fears of increasing racial tension are running high in London after a van was deliberately driven into a group of Muslim worshippers last night.

At least one person was killed and 10 others were injured in the assault, which authorities were treating as a terrorist attack. "What's happened here is very bad, but it's ironic just a few hours before they had been gathering with members of the Christian and Jewish community in support of the Jo Cox Foundation".

Toufik Kacimi, chief executive of the Muslim Welfare House, told Sky News the attack clearly targeted Muslims leaving evening prayers during Ramadan.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu says: "This is being treated as a terrorist incident and is being investigated by the Counter Terrorism Command".

The man was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder but Scotland Yard said he was later arrested for the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder.

A witness told the BBC that "from the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside.Everybody was shouting: "A van's hit people, a van's hit people". He died at the scene, but they say it's not clear if he died from the van attack or something else.

Imam Mohammed Mahmoud, who reportedly stopped the suspect from being harmed by a group of angry people, said he and others did their best to calm tensions.

In the past three months, mosques across Britain have reported several attacks against worshippers and places of worship.

The 47-year-old suspect was arrested for attempted murder at the scene and taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody.

One witness told The Telegraph that it appeared as though the driver of the van "lost control" of the vehicle "or something". According to Metropolitan police, the injured were taken to three different hospitals.

"All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene", she said. The attack comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The use of a vehicle to mow down pedestrians drew horrifying parallels with this month's London Bridge attack, when three men drove a van into pedestrians before embarking on a stabbing spree - an attack claimed by the Islamic State group - and with another auto and knife rampage near parliament in March.
