Police Arrest Man Amid Angry Crowds After Finsbury Park Incident

British Prime Minister Theresa May described the situation as a "terrible incident", the Guardian said.

More than ten people were run down near Finsbury Park Mosque as Muslims finished Ramadan evening prayers.

"The attack unfolded as a man was already receiving first aid at the scene, sadly that man has died", Neil Basu, senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism policing, said.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who constituency borders Finsbury Park, said: "I'm totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park tonight".

The chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque, Mohammed Kozbar, says the incident was a "cowardly attack" on worshippers.

"From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside".

Numerous victims are believed to have just finished worshipping at the Finsbury Park mosque after breaking the Ramadan fast. "I didn't see the attacker himself, although he seems to have been arrested, but I did see the van".

Footage from eyewitnesses shows the immediate aftermath of the incident at a mosque in London's Finsbury Park.

"He tried to kill a lot of people so obviously it's a terrorist attack".

Firefighters were able to knock the flames down quickly and stayed on the scene for better than two hours.

Miqdaad Versi, Assistant Secretary General of the MCB, revealed on his twitter account that about three or four worshipers were hit and killed by the vehicle, Efe news reported.

"A number of passers-by, or friends, or people who had come by from the mosque, were gathering around him to help take him to his family, take him to his house", Versi told Reuters.

A man, believed to be the driver of the vehicle, has been arrested, they said.

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". One person was killed and 10 were hurt.

Witnesses said the road was "backed up" with police cars, ambulance and fire engines.

It comes after two deadly Islamist attacks this year that used vehicles to ram pedestrians - one earlier this month in the London Bridge area and a March attack in which a man drove a auto into crowds on Westminster Bridge.

On March 22, a man drove a rented vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a policeman to death before being shot dead.

Five people were killed in the attack.

On May 22, a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert by American pop singer Ariana Grande in Manchester in northern England.

Britain has seen two other attacks this year.

Mrs May has also recently received criticism for her response to the Grenfell Tower fire.

The crash occurred near the Finsbury Park Mosque as worshippers were leaving after Ramadan prayers.
