1 dead, 10 injured after van strikes crowd outside London mosque

Scotland Yard said they had arrested a 48-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder.

"We told them the situation - that there's a man, he's restrained, he mowed down a group of people with his van and there's a mob attempting to hurt him", Mahmoud said.

Osborne was born in Singapore and his mother, sister and nephew live in Weston-super-Mare.

Armed police officers are on scene in Finsbury Park, north London, where a vehicle struck pedestrians in north London Monday, June 19, 2017. The police is investigating his address in Wales, while Security Minister Ben Wallace said the Osborne was not known to the security services.

He was held on charges of driving a van into Muslim worshippers who had been attending evening prayers at the Finsbury Park Mosque in north London.

Condemning the incident, Prime Minister Theresa May said: "This is a bad incident", adding, "All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones, and the emergency services on the scene". "Then how come the Police never shot a Kaafir [non-believer]".

In an attempt to counter some criticism over the delay in classifying the incident as a terrorist attack, she said: "Officers were in the immediate vicinity as the attack unfolded and responded within one minute".

His next-door neighbors, who are Muslim, said that Osborne had approached their 12-year-old son in the road and called him "inbred" this past weekend.

Police said all the casualties were Muslims.

The most recent statement from the Met Police said the suspect was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and taken to a south London police station where he remains in custody. Officials say it is unclear whether or not he died from injuries sustained during the attack or from a previous health issue for which he was already receiving first aid when the attack occurred.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu also released a statement regarding the terror attack, saying his thoughts are with all those affected.

The Muslim Council of Britain umbrella group said it expected increased security "as a matter of urgency".

Friends of Osborne have taken to social media to describe their shock at seeing him pictured as the attacker in national news coverage of the incident.

May chaired an emergency response meeting Monday morning.

Today's attack his is the fourth terror attack in the United Kingdom in four months, after incidents in Westminster, Manchester and on London Bridge.

Finsbury Park Mosque said it was a "callous terrorist attack" and noted it had occurred nearly exactly a year after a man obsessed with Nazis and extreme right-wing ideology murdered lawmaker Jo Cox, a former humanitarian aid worker.
