Authorities face questions over handling of London mosque attack

Muslim leaders called for calm.

Both attacks were claimed by the Islamic State group, and Trump later drew dismay from British leaders when he repeatedly disparaged London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, for his response to the attack.

One witness, who went by the name Abdul, told The Independent: "People gather on that part of the street during Ramadan to chat and socialize so it was premeditated".

"While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the awful attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge, it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect", Khan said, adding that there would be "zero tolerance" for hate crimes.

He then urged the crowd to remain calm until authorities arrived.

Witnesses said the suspect was smiling and waving as he brought carnage to Seven Sisters Road, with video posted online showing him give a nonchalant wave as police put him in the back of their vehicle.

"His counterterrorism adviser and other senior White House staff track the situation and have been in contact with our British counterparts since it occurred", Spicer said in an off-camera briefing. A local imam, Mohammed Mahmoud, said he and others shielded the man until police could take him away.

Monday morning the Muslim Welfare House headlined its website with this message: "All of us at Muslim Welfare House sends our thoughts and prayers to the victims and those injured in the major incident at Finsbury Park". "When the guy came out from his van he wanted to escape, run away and he was saying 'I want to kill Muslims". "This person was conscious".

Camera phone footage showed him being captured by worshippers, who attacked him as he screamed, "Kill me". "It's completely senseless, and it needs to stop, regardless of who is lodging the attack", Conway told CNN in February.

The teenagers, who live across the street from the mosque, awoke in the early hours of Monday morning to the sound of a loud crash.

Scotland Yard said the attack unfolded while a man who had taken ill was receiving first aid from the public.

She said: "Sadly we have suffered a number of attacks and very sad events over the last few weeks". However, the mosque was shut down and reorganized and has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade.

May said she would chair an emergency security Cabinet session Monday.

Britain's terror alert level is at "severe", meaning security officials believe an attack is highly likely. London police chief Cressida Dick described it as "quite clearly an attack on Muslims". In March, a man plowed a rented SUV into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge, killing four people before stabbing a police officer to death outside Parliament.

A British-born suicide bomber who returned from Libya days earlier kills 22 people and injures dozens during an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in northern England.
