One dead, 10 injured in London after vehicle hits pedestrians

One man confirmed dead after van drives into pedestrians outside London mosque

British Prime Minister Theresa May says she will chair an emergency session of the security Cabinet later Monday after a van crash in London that is being investigating as possible terrorism. Armed police, ambulances and the fire service were in attendance. Police have not released his identity.

The driver was arrested and taken to a hospital as a precaution.

Metropolitan Police deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu said the man who died was already receiving first aid from members of the public and it was not yet known if his death was caused by the attack.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene and eight people were taken to hospital.

Another witness, Adil, told Sky News that the response time by police and the other emergency services was much longer than that taken after the London Bridge and Manchester attacks but other witnesses told Sky that the police response was very fast.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, has urged people to "remain calm and vigilant".

Five people were killed in the attack. The Mosque Committee has said that the attack was part of the hate crime and should be termed as the Terror Attack.

Despite the change in leadership and a new focus on inter-faith relations, the mosque reported it had received a string of threatening emails and letters in the wake of the Paris attacks.

A leader of the Muslim Council of Britain has called for extra security at mosques after a van struck worshippers leaving prayers at the Finsbury Park mosque.

Videos from the scene posted on Twitter showed crowds of people surrounding a police van that apparently held the driver of the van. "This person was conscious".

He said in his opinion it was a terrorist attack.

But the attack also laid bare the frustrations of a community who believe they've been unfairly equated with extremists who have carried out atrocities in the name of Islam.

Communities and Local Government Secretary Sajid Javid spoke briefly to concerned residents before being led through the police cordon as he visited the scene. Onlookers then tried to physically retaliate against the man, but an imam on the scene protected the suspect until police arrived. She said it could have been an accident. Parents are scared to send their children to evening prayers. Vanzella said she went to the window and saw "loads of people gathering" in a corner across the road from her window. It was told that the mosque played a crucial role in radicalizing many youths to take arm for Islam.

The scene is just metres from the main 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.

The incident is being investigated by counter-terror cops, who say they are now not looking for any other suspects.

The incident comes at a time when emotions are high in England, where there have been several recent terrorist attacks. Vehicles have also been also used to attack the public on London's Westminster Bride, in Nice, and in Berlin.

She also retweeted a post by Brendan Cox, whose wife Jo Cox was murdered a year ago by a right-wing extremist, that said: 'When Islamist terrorists attack we rightly seek out hate preachers who spur them on.
