UK PM May condemns 'sickening' terror attack on Muslims

LONDON (AP) - In an attack that British Muslims say was aimed directly at them, a man plowed a van into a crowd of Muslim worshippers outside a north London mosque early Monday, injuring 10 people.

The 48-year-old suspect, whose identity has not been disclosed, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and is now in police custody.

Khan said there would be extra police to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan. The elderly man was later declared dead at the scene.

- Eight people were hospitalized, all Muslim.

"The mosque attack was just an example, but we live in fear every day", a Muslim man, who spoke on conditions of anonymity, told IBTimes UK. It is not yet known if his death was a direct result of the attack. Eight of the injured were taken to hospitals and the rest were treated at the scene.

Police Scotland will increase armed patrols near mosques the latest terror attack in London. This time British Muslims as they left a mosque having broken their fast as they prayed together at this sacred time of year. An imam prevented people from taking revenge on the man, he said.

The Metropolitan Police has said it is being treated as a "terrorist incident", and confirmed that all the victims were Muslim.

-The Finsbury Park Mosque "condemns in the strongest terms" a "heinous terrorist attack" early Monday, according to a statement released by the mosque. He said the recent attacks "are all an attack on our shared values". "They will achieve nothing other than to make us more united around our shared values because we understand very well that a house divided against itself can not stand".

"We will not let this happen".

Emotions are high in the United Kingdom in the wake of a series of deadly terrorist attacks and a fire at a London apartment building that killed dozens.

One woman who said she lives next to the scene told the BBC that she had heard yelling and screeching outside her window.

"My elder brother told me there is a guy driving the van and intentionally try to crush people while they were having their coffee", he said.

"Some big van ... crushing the people in the mosque". One man was trapped under the van and people tried to lift up the vehicle to free him.

Kacimi said when he did so, the driver said to him: "I've done my bit".

Police said in a statement Monday morning that the person who died at the scene had apparently fallen ill prior to the attack.

"I have specifically said I'm not inciting it", he stated.

"He was quickly and calmly given over to police", he said.

"Officers were in the immediate vicinity as the attack unfolded and responded within one minute". All of the victims were described as Muslim.

"More people are reporting hate crime than ever before but it is still significantly underreported".

And his colleague, Sir Richard Leese, the leader of Manchester City Council, also wrote: "Dreadful news from Finsbury Park".

An attack at Manchester arena on 22 May killed 23 and injured 119.

The European Jewish Congress's President Dr. Moshe Kantor condemned the "unconscionable attack on Muslim worshippers during their holy month of Ramadan", adding that "an attack on one religion is an attack on all religions and all people and faiths must stand together against terror".

It's true the targets were Muslim and the suspected attacker appears not to have been.
