London mosque terror attack van 'from Welsh company'

London mosque terror attack van 'from Welsh company'”

The attacker, who is believed to have acted alone, struck as the area was busy with worshippers attending Ramadan night prayers at the mosque.

According to the official residence of Downing Street, the head of the Government will preside today a meeting of the Emergency Committee, composed of the main ministers and representatives of the forces of the order, to approach the attack. Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who represents the area, uses the mosque as a place to meet with residents. The London ambulance service said a "number of resources have been sent to the scene in Seven Sisters Road".

One person described it as "unbelievable" and added that it was "very sad for his family too".

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

He told i: "My friend called me to say his son, who is only 17 or 18, was hit by the white van and is in a coma. I didn't see the attacker himself, although he seems to have been arrested, but I did see the van".

One man was pronounced dead at the scene and eight others were injured. Reuters could not immediately confirm that report.

The incident follows only weeks after a vehicle was driven into pedestrians on London Bridge by Islamist militants who then attacked crowds in Borough Market with knives, killing eight people.

London Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu told the media: "No matter what the motivation proves to be, and we are keeping an open mind, this is being treated as a terrorist attack and the Counter Terrorism Command is investigating".

She and other family members said they would not be issuing further statements at this time.

"We treat this as a terrorist attack and we in the Met are as shocked as anybody in this local community or across the country at what has happened". "He targeted Muslims this time", the witness, identified only as Rayan, said.

Mamhoud was joined by several other bystanders who formed a protective ring around the suspect until police hustled him into the back of a van, the Evening Standard reported.

He said: "Many will feel terrorised, no doubt be angry and saddened by what has taken place".

At least one person has been killed and several others injured in the attack after an unknown assailant ran his auto into worshippers who were coming out of the mosque after offering prayers.

"And then the imam of the mosque actually came out and said: "Don't hit him, hand him over to the police, pin him down".

"All the victims were Muslim and there are now no- other suspects", he added.

As soon as he is discharged, he will be taken to the police station for questioning. The attack killed five people.

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