Man charged after prayer leader stabbed at London mosque

He was treated in a London hospital but returned to attend prayers Friday.

Daniel Horton, 29, is accused of attacking Raafat Maglad at the Regent's Park venue on Thursday.

The attacker was apprehended by worshippers until police arrived, the London Central Mosque Trust said in a statement.

With his right arm in a sling and a bandage over his wound, Maglad told reporters: "I forgive him". He added: "What is done is done, he is not going to return".

The Metropolitan Police said it was not treating the unprovoked knife attack as terror-related. I have seen him in the mosque before but I don't know much about him'. I rushed myself out of the room and someone rushed me to hospital. "Everything happened all of a sudden".

The muezzin - someone who calls Muslims to prayer - said it was "very important" for him to attend again.

According to local media, the attacker was a regular visitor to the mosque.

"These kind of attacks sometimes are copied by some people and that's why we are anxious", he said.

The mosque has 24-hour security but it does not have airport-style metal detectors.

'I'm still in pain but I wanted to come here today and pray.

Amid the mayhem, 20, worshippers pinned the knifeman to the ground, while others administered first aid to Mr Maglad at the London Central Mosque.

"Although we believe this to be an isolated incident, patrols have been increased around the area of the mosque to provide reassurance to worshippers and the local community".

"People are looking over their shoulders, 100 per cent".
