London van attack targeting mosque is being treated as terrorism

London van attack targeting mosque is being treated as terrorism Police in London are investigating yet another terror attack in the city, after a van ploughed into a group of people near a mosque — leaving one person dead and 10 others injured.
The police have detained a 48-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder. The suspect was heard to shout: “I want to kill all Muslims,” as he tried to escape. The attack happened near the Finsbury Park Mosque in the early hours of Monday morning. A group of Muslims were tending to a man who had collapsed on the street. As they were administering aid, a van mounted the pavement and drove into the crowd. The man who was being looked after subsequently died, but it is unclear whether his death was a result of the attack. Islamophobic assaults have increased in the wake of recent London terror attacks, with figures released June 7 showing a 40 percent increase in hate crimes directed against muslims compared to 2016 averages.
