1 dead in crash near London mosque suspected as terrorism

One man has died and eight people have been taken to hospital after a van was driven into pedestrians near a north London mosque. "Eight people injured were taken to three separate hospitals", police said in a statement, adding that two other people were treated for minor injuries.

One witness told CNN it was clear that the attacker at Finsbury Park had deliberately targeted Muslims.

May says police are treating the crash as a potential terrorist attack. Many police cars and ambulances responded to the incident.

Another witness, who wanted to be identified as Abdulrahman, which is not his real name, told the Press Association: "I managed to get the driver of the van".

The van mounted the pavement and struckgroup of people just after midnight near Finsbury Park Mosque in Seven Sisters Road.

"Given we are approaching the end of the month of Ramadan and the celebration of Eid with many Muslims going to local mosques, we expect the authorities to increase security outside mosques as a matter of urgency".

Prime Minister Theresa May condemned it as a "terrible incident", while opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he was "totally shocked" and had been in touch with mosques and police.

One witness described being surrounded by bodies in the wake of the attack outside the Muslim Welfare House, yards from the mosque.

The group's general secretary, Harun Khan, said that eyewitnesses saw the van driver hit a number of Muslims.

Police said the driver was detained by the crowd until police arrived.

He added: "I said, 'tell me why did you try driving to kill innocent people?'"
