After two of those incidents — a March attack near Parliament and a June attack on London Bridge — Trump was quick to express solidarity and call for a strong response.

"Given we are approaching the end of the month of Ramadan and the celebration of Eid with many Muslims going to local mosques, we expect the authorities to increase security outside mosques as a matter of urgency".

One man outside the Finsbury Park mosque was killed, a van driver was arrested and eight people were taken to hospitals following the early morning incident.

- The Prime Minister said police made a decision to treat the incident as a terror attack within eight minutes of receiving the first emergency call.

Police later said it was unclear whether the deceased man might have died of an unrelated condition or injuries, as he was already on the ground being treated by bystanders after an apparent collapse when the van drove onto the sidewalk.

"You really had a mosque there that was essentially a way station for worldwide jihadism", said Raffaello Pantucci, the director for global security studies at the Royal United Services Institute in London.

"This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship", May said in a televised address. We must not let hate win.

Sarah Mushtaq said attacks like what happened in London can create some fear within the Muslim community in Windsor.

"It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible", May said in a statement after chairing a meeting of the governments emergency COBRA committee.

"We will not allow these terrorists to succeed".


"Oh Muslims you need to wake up the war is now starting in your own streets", says one of the messages on there. A witness told Sky News that two other people fled the scene of the attack, but police said there were no other suspects at present.

A witness told CNN's Phil Black the van "came to a stop, and that's when they were able to apprehend the driver. they were able to pull him out".

Imam Mohammed Mahmoud was hailed for his efforts to calm the chaotic situation before police arrived and was said to have used his body to shield the suspected terrorist from the fury of onlookers. Imam Mahmoud and a group of less hot-headed worshippers intervened to protect him.

Those targeted in the attack were leaving the local Finsbury Park Mosque and the neighboring Muslim Welfare House, another community Islamic center, just after midnight following Ramadan prayers.

Taxi driver Saleem Naema, 50, said: "I can't believe it". "This person was conscious".

Others said they did not know the family at all with one saying most people on the street kept themselves to themselves.

Witnesses said the area was busy because worshippers had been attending evening prayers. "We saw that clearly after London Bridge", he said.

Monday's attack hit a community already feeling targeted from the fallout from three previous attacks in as many months, all blamed on Islamic extremists.

Islamist hate preachers like Abu Hamza are driven out of mosques, reported to the authorities and deported from the United Kingdom, but extreme-right hate preachers amongst us are rewarded with Daily Mail columns, radio talkshows and very big book deals.
