Family of suspect in attack on London Muslims say they are devastated

An armed police officer mans a cordon on the Seven Sisters Road at Finsbury Park where a vehicle struck pedestrians in London Monday, June 19, 2017.

The attack unfolded as a man who had been taken ill was receiving first aid from the public near the mosque, where people had been saying Ramadan night prayers.

May attempted to counter that feeling in her speech, declaring that police arrived at the scene within one minute, and that it was classified as a possible terror attack in eight minutes.

"Officers are keeping an open mind regarding any motivation for the incident", the force said in a statement. Police shot and killed the three Islamic extremists who carried out the attack.

He said that two people were dragged beneath the van adding "one of whom we are anxious may be paralysed for life because he said he could not move his arms and legs and said he could not feel them".

The Muslim Association of Britain has called on police to increase security in mosques. The use of a vehicle to mow down pedestrians drew parallels with a deadly attack on London Bridge earlier this month.

Hooper criticized Trump's response to the mosque attack in London and to the killing of 17-year-old Nabra Hassanen in Virginia.

"This morning, our country woke to news of another terrorist attack on the streets of our capital city: the second this month and every bit as sickening as those which have come before", May told reporters outside her Downing Street office. "It still hasn't really sunk in".

Police reported they are not aware of any injuries.

After being arrested on Monday, Osborne said he had wanted to kill "many Muslim people", one witness told journalists.


Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of the Finsbury Park Mosque, described the attack as "cowardly".

Neighbours said they were "shocked" when they saw pictures of him being arrested. The previous attacks had been blamed on Islamist extremists.

The Bishop of Stepney, Rt Rev Adrian Newman, said "an attack on one faith is an attack on us all".

Speaking to Sky News, Mahmoud said: "My faith is an integral part of me and it dictates everything about my decision-making, but at the same time as a human I can't allow another human to be harmed unnecessarily".

The group of Muslims were returning back from the Finsbury Park Mosque after breaking their fast.

It is the fourth terror attack in the United Kingdom in three months, after incidents in Westminster, Manchester and on London Bridge. Many viewed in the recent labelling of Muslims as "heroes", "life-savers" and "supporters" of the victims of Grenfell Tower tragedy, as one of the positives to come from this catastrophic incident.

Muslims are threatened by both terrorism and hate crimes in the West, according to Miller. They said they would sort it out.

FRANK LANGFITT, BYLINE: A group of worshippers were on the sidewalk outside the Muslim Welfare House just after midnight.

"It's about high time that these acts of terrorism are called "terrorism", and not only called "terrorism" when Muslims are the perpetrators", Iftikhar said.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan also expressed his thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the incident in a statement, writing: "I am grateful to the emergency services, who responded quickly and have been working on the scene throughout the night".
