A suspected terror attack in North London has killed at least one man with eight others injured after a man drove a van into a crowd of worshippers who had recently left a mosque in Finsbury Park.
The victims are thought to have been attending Ramadan prayers. Reports from the scene allege that the man yelled “I want to kill all Muslims”.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said this was a “horrific terrorist attack”, reassuring communities—particularly those observing Ramadan—that extra police have been deployed.
The van driver, a 48-year-old man, was detained by members of the public before being arrested at the scene.
Several people condemned media sources for failing to make his ethnicity part of their headlines, comparing perceived coverage of other crimes with this incident.
