Police Taser man suspected of attacking Regent's Park mosque worshippers

In a private meeting with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Islington South MP Emily Thornberry and other MPs, around 30 women gathered at the mosque said the Finsbury Park attack was just the latest in a series of Islamophobic attacks - and called for action.

His mother, Christine Osborne, 72, told ITV News her son was a "complex" person, adding: "I'm not going to defend him but you know he's my son and it's a awful bad shock and it's not just robbing the bank, it's an atrocity".

On June 3, eight people were killed in a van and knife attack on London Bridge and nearby Borough Market.

In a statement on behalf of his family, his nephew Ellis Osborne, 26, said his uncle was "not a racist". Drinkers in Osborne's local, the Hollybush in Pentwyn, said he was ordered out of the pub on Saturday night.

The suspect - who suffered a black eye and cuts to his face and hands - was later filmed repeatedly shouting "kill me" to the men who grabbed him.

'It was very early, about 7am, and I was walking my dog when Darren suddenly jumped out of the bushes in front of me, ' she said.

It quoted Mohammed Kozbar, the chairman of the Finsbury Park mosque, as saying: "Yesterday we all experienced a horrific attack on our families, on our freedom, on our dignity". They also complained that a recent spike in hate crimes targeting Muslims has garnered little attention.

The attacks, which have left 34 dead and scores wounded, have polarized some sections of Britain, already divided over the decision to leave the European Union in a vote that was largely fueled by racist, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric fanned by right-leaning tabloids. The van driver was pinned down by locals before being shielded from retaliatory violence by an imam and detained by police.

London police chief Cressida Dick said the incident was "quite clearly an attack on Muslims" and promised a stepped-up police presence near mosques as the holy month of Ramadan draws to a close.

"I don't want to say anything more".

But on Saturday, she said, he approached her eldest son, 12, and called him "inbred" and repeated the insult to her 10-year-old daughter the next day.

"We stand with the Muslim community - you are not alone, we share your pain and we will not let you down". "Sometimes I feel threatened with my veil on".

Neighbors said Osborne had been living in a tent after being kicked out of the family home.

Osborne, 47, has been arrested on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism, including murder and attempted murder. A man, a father of six children, being killed in cold blood and many injured by an extremist, by a terrorist.

The British Press Association reported police had responded to reports of a "drunk man" sleeping in a van in Cardiff, who a witness now believes was Osborne, just 24 hours before the rampage.
