Theresa May condemns 'sickening' terror attack on Muslims

Theresa May condemns 'sickening' terror attack on Muslims”

A van ploughed into a crowd of people near the mosque early Monday, leaving one person dead and injuring 10 others in the second terror attack this month in the British capital.

Earlier this month, a van veered into pedestrians on London Bridge, setting off vehicle and knife attacks that killed eight people and wounded many others on the bridge and in the nearby Borough Market area.

He is also alleged to have told the injured: "You deserve it".

The 48-year-old suspect mowed down pedestrians outside a mosque on Seven Sisters Road in Finsbury Park.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, meanwhile, paid tribute to the local community who apprehended the attacker near the mosque, especially the religious leader who kept him safe from mob violence.

"Al-Azhar affirms its total rejection of this terrorist, racist, sinful act, calling on Western countries to take all precautionary measures to curb the phenomenon of Islamophobia", the institution said in a statement. Officers who were in the vicinity responded immediately.

Britain set its terror at "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely, after a pair of incidents recently.

"Together, as a united community, we can defeat those who seek to divide us".

A further two people were treated at the scene, where police arrested a man who had been held by members of the public and protected by the Imam from angry witnesses.

All of the casualties were Muslims, he added.

Eyewitnesses interviewed by ABC News said people had gathered outside the mosque after prayers when the van drove into them.

Mr Basu added: "The attack unfolded whilst a man was receiving first aid from the public at the scene; sadly, he has died".

Muslim Welfare House told the Guardian "Imam Mohammed Mahmoud's bravery and courage helped diffuse the situation after the incident and prevented additional injury or loss of life".

"He wanted to run away and was saying: 'I want to kill Muslims'".

Another witness said the suspect was shouting "kill me, I've done my job".

A group of people was standing outside a North London mosque when a man among them collapsed due to a heart attack. "An attack on one religion is an attack on all religions and all people and faiths must stand together against terror".
