Casualties reported after van strikes crowd in Muslim neighborhood in London

Britain's terrorist alert is set at "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely, Sky News reported.

One elderly man, who had collapsed just before the incident, was pronounced dead at the scene, but it is not yet known whether his death was directly linked to the attack.

Officers close by attended the scene instantly, the attack was declared as a terrorist incident within eight minutes and armed officers were on the scene within 10 minutes, police said.

Police said all the victims of the attack were Muslim and many were believed to have just left evening prayers after breaking the Ramadan fast.

On May 22, a suicide attack killed 22 people and injured almost 60 after an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. "He said 'Because I want to kill many Muslim people".

A property in the Welsh capital of Cardiff said by the media to be his home was searched by investigators. London police are investigating it as a terrorist incident.

"The driver jumped out and then he was pinned down to the floor and people were punching him and beating him, which was reasonable because of what he's done", a witness named Adil Rana told the Guardian. Add to that the trauma from the Manchester attacks, it is not possible for people not to panic.

Following an Islamist-inspired van-and-knife attack in the London Bridge area on June 3, the city saw a sharp rise in anti-Muslim crimes. She has also been criticized for her response to a fire in a London tower block last Wednesday which killed at least 79 people.

Individual assaults on Muslims and mosques take place, alas, on a very regular basis - the "Tell MAMA" organization that tracks such attacks reports this with great detail.

The Finsbury Park mosque was associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9/11 attacks in the United States but was shut down and reorganized.

However, a new board of trustees and management took over in February 2005, a year after Abu Hamza was arrested by British police.

"While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the awful attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge, it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect", Khan said.

"Hatred and evil of this kind will never succeed", May said. Attendance has greatly increased since then among worshippers from various communities, according to the mosque's website.
