''I Wanted To Kill All Muslims'' - London Mosque Attacker Says

Police have confirmed they are investigating a terror attack in London after a van ploughed into people near a north London mosque, leaving one person dead and injuring eight others.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, and two of those hit by the van were said to be “very seriously injured”.

The prime minister, Theresa May, was woken to be told of the early morning incident at Finsbury Park and has confirmed that counter-terrorism command is leading an active inquiry.

Deputy assistant commissioner Neil Basu, the senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism, said: “The attack unfolded whilst a man was receiving first aid from the public at the scene, sadly, he has died. Any causative link between his death and the attack will form part of our investigation. It is too early to state if his death was as a result of the attack.

“No matter what the motivation proves to be, and we are keeping an open mind, this is being treated as a terrorist attack and the counter-terrorism command is investigating.

“This was an attack on London and all Londoners and we should all stand together against extremists whatever their cause.”

Witnesses said the man who subsequently died had been taken ill and a small crowd had gathered around him to help. The van, they said, ploughed into those trying to assist him.

The people struck were all Muslim, Basu said. Witnesses said some of them were wearing clothing that visually identified as such.
