Van attack caused by islamophobia: muslims

After Finsbury Park attack, message of resiliency greets London Underground commuters

At least one man died and 10 others were injured in the attack, which police are now treating as a "terrorist incident".

Some locals came onto the street in support of the mosque on Monday, carrying signs saying "We love our mixed community" and "Leave our Muslim neighbours alone".

When he woke at about 1 a.m.to the sound of a helicopter circling overhead, Hornak said, his first thought was another terrorist attack.

No one else was injured despite the crowds of tourists and others walking down the avenue on a hot, sunny day, the Paris police department said.

"Since the recent attacks we've been scared", Zara, who regularly attends Finsbury Park Mosque and nearby Muslim Welfare House, says. "I don't think people understand how much these attacks affect all of us".

In remarks outside Downing Street on Monday, Prime Minister Theresa May said, "It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible".

Early this month, in what police called a terror attack, three Muslim extremists in a van veered into pedestrians on London Bridge, before attacking people with knives in the nearby Borough Market.

Finsbury Park Mosque said it was a "callous terrorist attack" and noted it had occurred nearly exactly a year after a man obsessed with Nazis and extreme right-wing ideology murdered lawmaker Jo Cox, a former humanitarian aid worker.

The Met Police said extra police patrols were being deployed to reassure the public and those observing Ramadan.

Locals eventually pinned down Osborne, and the imam of the Muslim Welfare House stepped in to stop him from receiving a mob beating.

The driver was later arrested on suspicion of "the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder", the police said.

In a statement issued around six hours after the incident, the Finsbury Park Mosque condemned the "heinous terrorist attack" and said: "We are extremely unhappy with the mainstream media not reporting this as a terrorist attack, whereas they are very swift in describing attacks involving individuals professing to be Muslims and acting in the name of Islam".

Mahmoud recounted that the incident came to his attention shortly after completing his prayers when a distressing Muslim brother came in the mosque and informed them of the tragedy that unravelled outside the Muslim Welfare Centre.

It will assign more police in the London area.

She said: "It's a awful, bad shock".

"We all have harmony in this area, and these people try to divide us, but we tell them that we will not let you do that". "So we pushed people away from him until he was safely taken by police into custody and put into the back of the van".

"Horrible attack on mosque attendees in London".

His mother Christine, 72, said she was living "every mother's worst nightmare" and screamed when she saw her son on TV.

"At this stage, we are calling for calm", he said.

On Monday the police said that the victim was already being treated by emergency services when the attack happened.

A suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester, northern England, in May also killed 22 people, while in March, a man drove a rented auto into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a policeman to death before being shot dead.
