UK officials treating mosque attack as terrorism

The video of the crash early Monday morning was accessed by the AP.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has described an attack on a north London mosque attack as a "sickening" attempt to destroy liberties that unite Britain, such as freedom of worship.

The van rammed into the worshipers on Seven Sisters Road, a busy thoroughfare in Finsbury Park, north London, near a Muslim community center and a mosque. The statement says: "One man was pronounced dead at the scene".

"The attack, which killed one person and injured a number of other pedestrians, as they left a mosque". He was arrested by police, although his name has not been released. He has been taken to hospital as a precaution and will be taken into custody once discharged, police said.

It was unclear whether the man died as a result of the attack, Basu said.

Police said the man who later died was being treated by members of the public when the van struck at 12.20 a.m. (2320GMT).

- Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party tweeted: "I'm totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park tonight".

"An attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths and communities".

Tell MAMA, an anti-Islamophobia group, had visited Muslim Welfare House on Friday last week to inform the community about the need to report anti-Muslim hate incidents and to consider their safety during Ramadan. "The situation is still unfolding and I urge all Londoners to remain calm and vigilant".

- The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, said "the appalling attack on Muslims in Finsbury Park is an attack on us all and on the culture and values of our country".

London police have declared the crash a major incident and closed the area to normal traffic.

"Less than 48 hours later, the same area experienced a terrorist attack aimed at killing Muslims returning home after their Ramadan prayers". He was to receive a "mental health assessment in due course".

She added: "It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible".

In 2015, the mosque was one of around 20 that took part in an open day organised by the MCB to promote better understanding of Islam after Islamist-inspired terrorist attacks in Paris.

Counter-terror police were investigating the incident.

"There has been an outpouring of sympathy for all for the recent terror attacks but hardly a whisper on this attack", he said. Police killed the three attackers. It has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade.

The scene is just metres from the main railway line linking London with Edinburgh, the main Arsenal Football Club shop and what was the Rainbow Theatre, considered the prestige London concert venue in the 1960s and 1970s.

Prime Minister Theresa May said she would chair a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee later Monday. I am grateful to our emergency services, who responded quickly and have been working on the scene throughout the night.

The incident comes at a time when emotions are high in the United Kingdom, in the wake of a series of deadly terrorist attacks.

The incident comes weeks after a van hit pedestrians on London Bridge and knife-wielding attackers killed eight people nearby.
