London Mosque Attacker: 'I Want to Kill All Muslims'

The driver, who is said to be 48 years old, was apprehended by bystanders and was later handed over to police.

British media reports said that a crowd had gathered outside the mosque Sunday night to help an elderly worshiper who had collapsed; the man died after the attack, but it was unclear whether his death was due to the attack itself.

- One man was found dead at the scene, according to police, but it's not clear if he was killed during the attack.

Police say in a statement that a worshipper was receiving first aid outside the mosque at the time of the attack.

Europol announced Monday that the weeklong operation last month by law enforcement and other agencies from 26 countries led to 133 people being detained or arrested on suspicion of human trafficking or illegal immigration, while intelligence gathered has sparked 44 new investigations.

Speaking at the scene she said: "This was quite clearly an attack on Muslims who looked like they were probably Muslims and they were coming from a prayer meeting". "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", he said.

Mahmoud has been praised by many, including the Mayor of London and Michael Gove.

Another witness, Adil Rana, 24, said: "The van was driving towards us to try and basically hit us at speed".

Eight people were killed and 50 injured on 3 June when three Islamist militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge and stabbed people at nearby restaurants and bars.

The crash occurred near the Finsbury Park mosque. "I want to kill all Muslims'".

Numerous people who were injured in Monday's attack near the Finsbury Park Mosque in London had just finished praying at the worship center when a white van suddenly mounted the sidewalk and ran deliberately into them, according to people who witnessed the crash.

Local youths spoken to by Middle East Eye said they were forced to restrain the alleged attacker themselves for between 10 and 20 minutes.

Police said that all of the victims were from the Muslim community, but it was "too early to tell" if the man who died at the scene did so as a result of the attack.

Adil Rana, 24, said the suspected attacker was pinned to the floor by members of the public "and people were punching him and beating him, which was reasonable because of what he's done".

The Metropolitan Police are treating the incident as a potential terror attack.

"Sending love and prayers to the victims in #FinsburyPark London".

But Kacimi said there was no need for the community to panic, because police and government officials have been "very, very supportive".

"We have to protect each other's faith, each other's way of life, and that's what makes us a strong society and community". "We must stand united against hatred and extremism in all it's ugly forms", tweeted Trump, who is a top aide to her father, President Donald Trump.

"Our community is in shock, our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this", Mohammed Kozbar, the mosque's chairman, said Monday. He called the incident a "horrific terrorist attack".

Manchester was also hit on May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert. Earlier this year, a man plowed into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four people before stabbing a police officer outside Parliament.
