Suspect Held in Mosque Attack

"The attack unfolded as a man was already receiving first aid at the scene, sadly that man has died", Neil Basu, senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism policing, said.

The so-called Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. "One thing that is clear". Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque, called for Prime Minister Theresa May's government to take action.
