English cardinal after mosque attack: 'Repudiate hatred and violence'

English cardinal after mosque attack: 'Repudiate hatred and violence'”

The Metropolitan Police Service, already stretched by investigations of the earlier attacks and a high-rise apartment fire that killed at least 79 people, said it was putting extra patrols on the streets to protect the public. "There has been far too much tolerance of extremism over many years".

Imam Mohammed Mahmoud tried to keep members of the crowd at bay and was being called a hero.

British Prime Minister Theresa May called the attack near the north London mosque a "sickening" attempt to destroy liberties that unite Britain, such as freedom of worship. Which is why it's confusing that for a while after the attack happened, some news headlines neglected to use the word "terrorism;" a messed-up thing that did not go unnoticed by the Harry Potter author.

One witness told CNN it was clear that the attacker at Finsbury Park had deliberately targeted Muslims. The attack comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

"Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed", May said. Officers who were in the vicinity responded immediately.

The incident is being investigated as an act of terror, according to London police. "One man was pronounced dead at the scene".

Witnesses said they saw people at the scene grab the man, pulling him from the van and started hitting him.

Mayor Sadiq Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, urged residents to focus on their shared values and to stand together during an unprecedented period in the capital's history.

Britain, especially London, has been "on edge" over several recent incidents, including the terror bombing in Manchester and the vehicle attack and stabbings on London Bridge.

"So he came past my side; I tackled him down to the ground with the help of other people".

May said police would continue to assess the security needs of mosques and would provide whatever additional resources were needed. "We stopped all forms of attack and abuse towards him that were coming from every angle".

"He said: "I done my job".

During the 10 am edition of his June 19 show, host Grant Stinchfield claimed that "something just seems odd" about the attack and referred to the violent incident as a "maybe attack". Police shot and killed the three men who carried out the attack.

The UK has seen a bombing of a concert in Manchester in May, a stabbing spree earlier this month in the London Bridge area and a March attack in which a man drove a vehicle into crowds on Westminster Bridge.
