Finsbury Park suspect 'turned against Muslims' after London Bridge attack

Finsbury Park suspect 'turned against Muslims' after London Bridge attack

The BBC was among other media which identified the man arrested as Osborne, while London's Metropolitan Police said it would not name the suspect until he was charged.

He was named in the British press as 47-year-old father of four, Darren Osbourne.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene of the attack, although he had collapsed before it occurred and police said they were "continuing to establish whether there is any link between his death and the attack".

The alleged attacker is now in custody, and a residence in Cardiff, Wales, is being inspected by the police as possibly associated with the incident.

The vehicle hit pedestrians near Finsbury Park Mosque in north London as they left Ramadan night prayers at around midnight.

The London police are said to be taking more security measures after a recent spate of terrorist attacks. Police said eight of the injured were hospitalized; the other two had minor injuries and were treated at the scene.

"An attack on one faith is an attack on all faiths, it seems to me", said Reverend Adrian Newman, Bishop of Stepney, according to The Telegraph. Witnesses reported that the assailant repeatedly said: "I want to kill Muslims".

A van struck worshipers leaving a north London mosque early Monday morning, causing several casualties, local media reported.

Police arrested the van's driver, but were trying to determine whether the collision was accidental or deliberate.

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, commented, "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".

The man was held until police arrived and Sky News reports that it was the mosque's imam who prevented some in the tense and angry crowd from beating the man.

After being seized, the man said he had wanted to kill "many Muslim people", one witness told journalists.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said it was a "horrific terrorist attack" aimed at "innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan".

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. By God's grace we managed to surround him and to protect him from any harm", Mahmoud told reporters.

Police said all the casualties were Muslims.
