United Kingdom moves to ease tensions after van attack on London Muslims

With the burnt-out shell of Grenfell Tower hanging still in the sky above west London, Cardiff father-of-four Darren Osborne took it upon himself to turn the United Kingdom back towards culture and racial division, with a van attack on worshipers at Finsbury Park mosque in east London.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu said police are investigating whether the death of the man getting first aid was a direct result of the attack, but it was too early to say for sure. British Security Minister Ben Wallace said authorities were aware of rising far-right activity but the suspect was not known to them prior to the attack.

Mrs May said extra police resources "have already been deployed", but London mayor Sadiq Khan said police were already "working their socks off".

She chaired a meeting of the emergency COBRA committee at Downing Street and later visited Finsbury Park Mosque in north London, near the site of the attack, meeting with community and faith leaders.

"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.

POLICE have pledged to step up patrols around Muslim places of worship as Theresa May condemned "an evil borne out of hatred". He was heard to yell that he wanted to "kill all Muslims" or "kill more Muslims" or possibly both.

"There has been an outpouring of sympathy for all for the recent terror attacks but hardly a whisper on this attack", he said.

Mamhoud was joined by several other bystanders who formed a protective ring around the suspect until police hustled him into the back of a van, the Evening Standard reported.

Police are treating the incident as a terror attack.

"He was sitting and holding him like that, people kept holding him", Ali said. He is being held on suspicion of attempted murder and alleged terror offenses. Vanzella said she went to the window and saw "loads of people gathering" in a corner across the road from her window.

Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque, described the attack as "cowardly". After those attacks, the mosque was shut down and reorganized and has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade.

Transport for London tweeted that Seven Sisters Road was closed northbound at Hornsey Road and southbound at Rock Street.

The use of a vehicle to mow down pedestrians drew horrifying parallels with this month's London Bridge attack.

To the north, Manchester was hit by a deadly attack May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.
