Fears more Muslims could be targeted after London mosque attack

May attempted to counter that feeling in her speech, declaring that police arrived at the scene within one minute, and that a terror attack was declared in eight minutes. According to the official residence of Downing Street, the head of the Government will preside today a meeting of the Emergency Committee, composed of the main ministers and representatives of the forces of the order, to approach the attack.

May condemned the assault as "sickening", saying Britain's determination to fight "terrorism, extremism and hatred. must be the same, whoever is responsible".

Neil Basu, the Metropolitan Police's deputy assistant commissioner, said the attack unfolded while a man was already receiving first aid near the mosque.

Eyewitness Abdul Rahman said the driver said he wanted to "kill all Muslims".

"He was shouting: "I want to kill all Muslims", another witness, Khalid Amin, told BBC television.

"We found a group of people quickly started to collect around him, around the assailant and some tried to hit him, either kicks or punches", Imam Mahmoud told reporters this morning outside the mosque.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, meanwhile, paid tribute to the local community who apprehended the attacker near the mosque, especially the religious leader who kept him safe from mob violence.

This was the fourth terror attack in the England in four months, following incidents in Westminster, Manchester and on the London Bridge. "We stopped all forms of attack and abuse towards him that were coming from every angle".

One victim has died and at least 10 others were injured after a van plowed into a group of people near a north London mosque. His attack killed five people.

Coroner: Cocaine among drugs found in Carrie Fisher's system
The sleeping condition and a build-up of fatty tissue in her arteries were among the issues recorded, a Los Angeles coroner said. A series of nonfiction books, including Wishful Drinking and The Princess Diarist , cemented her reputation as a serious author.

Witnesses say Imam Mohammed urged people to leave the man alone, telling the crowd: "Do not touch him!"

Forensics officers are examining a white van which has Pontyclun Van Hire on it - a firm from Rhondda Cynon Taff in south Wales. The firm has said it was shocked and saddened at the tragedy.

Even as he grappled with the fact that the terror attack on Muslims in Finsbury Park had left his friend's teenage son gravely ill in a coma, Said Tiet was among many yesterday whose instinct was to speak of unity rather than schism.

After the London Bridge attack earlier this month, police had described it publicly as a terrorist incident within two and a half hours.

"The police will be ensuring there's an increased police presence across London, but particularly those parts of London where there are big Muslim communities around mosques and other places of worship".

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the opposition Labour Party, also commented on the incident on Twitter.

He added that it had "all the hallmarks" of a terrorist attack.

The use of a vehicle to mow down pedestrians drew horrifying parallels with the London Bridge attack, when three men drove a van into pedestrians before embarking on a stabbing spree, as well as with another auto and knife rampage in Westminster in March.
