Muslims Leaving Mosque Targeted In Terror Attack In London Killing One

Muslims Leaving Mosque Targeted In Terror Attack In London Killing One”

He was later criticized after he launched a Twitter attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the wake of that attack.

The author's commentary had a common theme: To her, there is a notable double standard of how people react to terror attacks carried out by Muslims as opposed to those of another religion.

British Security Minister Ben Wallace said authorities were aware of rising far-right activity but were not aware of the suspect prior to the attack near a north London mosque.

"Whomever did this, if they have intentionally attacked pedestrians they are plain and simply terrorists and should be treated as all terrorists, with condemnation and they must face the full force of the law".

Mahmoud said he was in the mosque shortly after prayers when "a brother came in, quite panicked, and said that somebody had run over a group of people and tried to kill them so we rushed out".

The 47-year-old man was arrested for attempted murder after the incident in Finsbury Park early Monday. One witness told the BBC he held down the suspect for 20 to 30 minutes before police arrived.

- The incident unfolded as evening Ramadan prayers ended. "Inquiries continue. More information will be released when confirmed", police said in a statement.

"Extra policing resources have been deployed across London in order to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan".

'Richard and I will attend prayers at Finsbury Park mosque later today.

All of the victims were members of London's Muslim community.

The Daily Mail piece has now been updated to describe the situation as a "terror attack". Two were in a very serious condition, police said.

"The assailant was on the floor, apprehended, some individuals were trying to injure him but obviously the general Muslims were saying that, "no don't do that", he said. Around 10% of the borough's population is Muslim.

The mosque now claims to attract nearly 2,000 worshippers and in 2014 it won a prestigious award for its services to the community, though its past links to extremism made it a target for criticism from Britain's far right. After Hamza was extradited to the U.S.in 2014, he was found guilty of 11 terrorist offenses and sentenced to life in prison.

Basu thanked those who detained the driver, adding: "Their restraint in the circumstances was commendable".

-The Finsbury Park Mosque "condemns in the strongest terms" a "heinous terrorist attack" early Monday, according to a statement released by the mosque.

"An attack on a mosque, an attack on a synagogue, an attack on a church is actually an attack on all of us".

South Wales Police are working with their counterparts in the Met to investigate the Finsbury Park attack after it emerged the van driven at pedestrians was hired in the village of Pontyclun. "While this seems to be an attack on a particular community, just like the awful attacks on Manchester, Westminster and the London Bridge is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect", says in the publication.

- "London is a city of many faiths and many nationalities".

One person has been arrested but police have not said if the crash was deliberate or accidental.

Witnesses said the suspect was smiling and waving as he brought carnage to Seven Sisters Road, with video posted online showing him give a nonchalant wave as police put him in the back of their vehicle.

Friends of Osborne have taken to social media to describe their shock at seeing him pictured as the attacker in national news coverage of the incident.

This time, however, the attacker appears to have deliberately targeted at Muslims. "During the night, ordinary British citizens were set upon while they were going about their lives, completing their night worship".

Nauert says the U.S.is extending sympathy to the families and communities of the victims and hopes the wounded recover quickly.

Britain's terror alert level is at "severe", meaning security officials believe an attack is highly likely, and a series of extremist attacks have struck across the country in the last few months.
