'Totally shocked' by London mosque incident: United Kingdom opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn

'Totally shocked' by London mosque incident: United Kingdom opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn

Police said in a statement there were "a number of casualties", adding that they were called to reports of "a vehicle in collision with pedestrians" at 00:20 am (2320 GMT).

"While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the bad attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect", Khan said.

One man was arrested after allegedly driving deliberately into a crowd of Muslims in North London.

Video posted online of the aftermath of Monday's attack showed a scene of chaos as people tried to help the injured. The 48-year-old author of the attack was detained by members of the public before he was taken into custody by the police. The Counter Terrorism Command is carrying out the investigation.

Someone in the crowd is heard yelling, "No-one touch him!"

The attack came shortly after worshippers had been attending evening prayers at the Muslim Welfare House.

The Finsbury Park mosque was associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9/11 attacks in the United States but was shut down and reorganized.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said police are investigating whether the death of the man who was being given first aid was a direct result of the attack, but it was too early to say for sure.

Harun Khan, the head of the MCB, said the van had "intentionally" run over people leaving night prayers for the holy month of Ramadan.

On March 22, a man drove a rented vehicle into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in London and stabbed a police officer guarding the British parliament to death before being shot dead.

"From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside. … Everybody was shouting: "A van’s hit people, a van’s hit people", one woman who lives opposite the scene told the BBC.

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

A Reuters witness saw at least one person being loaded into an ambulance.

Commenting on reports that the van driver also produced a knife, the statement went on: "At this stage there are no reports of any persons having suffered any knife injuries".

A van is seen near Finsbury Park station after the vehicle struck pedestrians in north London, Monday June 19, 2017.

May described the crash early Monday morning as a "terrible incident".

Islington's northern part is represented in Parliament by Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party.

He added: 'Our prayers are with the victims and families.

'Given we are approaching the end of the month of Ramadan and the celebration of Eid with many Muslims going to local mosques, we expect the authorities to increase security outside mosques as a matter of urgency.

London Ambulance tweeted: "We have sent a number of resources to an incident in Seven Sisters Road". Many police cars and ambulances were responding.

Transportation officials said roads in the area were being closed.

No other details were immediately available.
