JK Rowling corrected a Finsbury Park attack headline

JK Rowling corrected a Finsbury Park attack headline”

A speeding van whose white driver shouted "I'm going to kill all Muslims" ploughed into a group of worshippers near a London mosque, leaving a man dead at the spot and 10 injured.

It appeared to be the third incident in as many months in the British capital involving a perpetrator deliberately driving a vehicle into a crowd. All the victims were Muslim, he said.

The imam was hailed as the "hero of the day" by Toufik Kacimi, chief executive of the Muslim Welfare House, outside which the attack took place.

A witness told CNN's Phil Black the van "came to a stop, and that's when they were able to apprehend the driver. they were able to pull him out". The 48-year-old driver was arrested by police after being detained by members of public at the scene. He has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to police.

An elderly man apparently collapsed outside the mosque.

Police said it was too early to say if the man who died did so directly because of the attack, as he was already receiving first aid from the public at the scene when it happened.

Theresa May has vowed that "hatred and evil" of the kind seen in the attack on a north London mosque will never succeed.

"When things were getting very heated, and we can understand why, Imam Mohammed did a really good job in calming things down and making sure that justice can be done as it should be done via due process, rather than anyone taking the law into their own hands", he told Sky News. People could be heard shouting and screaming amid the chaos and bloodstains were visible on the pavement.

"So he came back to the main road and I managed to get him to the ground and me and some other guys managed to hold him until the police arrived". "He bit my thumb as well". "People are both scared and angry".

Ibn Omar, 25, who lives nearby, saw the aftermath of the attack.

- The head of Tell MAMA, an anti-Islamophobia group, says anti-Muslim hate crime in the United Kingdom has increased noticeably after the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.

"My thoughts are with all the innocent people affected, and I wish so much for peace", she said.

Omar added: "This was an attack on Muslims in this community, it is obvious".

Vanzella said she saw police put a man into a police auto and take him away, but she didn't see them arrest him. "The guy was laughing". "All the police and helicopters came after around eight minutes".

The attack comes at a time of political turmoil in Britain, as Prime Minister May plunges into divorce talks with the European Union weakened by the loss of her parliamentary majority in a June 8 election.

London police say they're investigating whether the death of a man outside a London mosque was the direct result of a van plowing into a crowd of Muslim worshippers. He has been taken to hospital as a precaution and will be taken into custody once discharged.

Basu highlighted that "extra policing resources have been deployed across London in order to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan". The man, who did not want to be named, said: "The gentleman went straight down this road, people were just conversing, talking, just doing what we're doing".

- All of the victims were from the Muslim community, police said. "There is far more that unites us than divides us", he added.

- The Prime Minister said police made a decision to treat the incident as a terror attack within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call.

To the north, Manchester was hit by a deadly attack May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

One person died and eight people were wounded, two seriously, after the vehicle rammed into people leaving Ramadan prayers in Finsbury Park, north London, in the early hours of Monday morning.

But in 2015, the mosque reopened for what it described as a "new era" devoted to serving the local community.
