LONDON (AP) — A vehicle struck pedestrians near a mosque in north London early Monday morning, causing several casualties, police said.

One person has been arrested. The London Ambulance Service says the injured are being taken to hospitals. Eyewitnesses reported seeing police give emergency medical treatment to at least one of the injured.

The Muslim Council tweeted that worshippers were struck by a van as they were leaving prayers at the Finsbury Park mosque. It said its prayers are with the victims.

The neighborhood has two mosques, and several hundred worshippers would have been in the area after attending prayers as part of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The Finsbury Park mosque was associated with extremist ideology for several years after the 9/11 attacks in the United States but was shut down and reorganized. It has not been associated with radical views for more than a decade.

London police have declared the crash a major incident and closed the area to normal traffic.

Metropolitan Police said officers were called to the scene on Seven Sisters Road at 12:20 a.m. Monday. Many police cars and ambulances responded to the incident.

No other details were immediately available.

Britain's terrorist alert has been set at "severe" meaning an attack is highly likely.

Earlier this month, a van veered into pedestrians on London Bridge, setting off vehicle and knife attacks that killed eight people and wounded many others on the bridge and in the nearby Borough Market area. Three Muslim extremists who carried out the attack were killed by police.

Manchester was also hit by a severe attack when a bomber killed more than 20 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

But I thought "Diversity is our strength".

It was only a matter of time before after repeated failures of the british government and the climate of lawlessness someone was going to take matters into their own hands ... Multiculturalism is not being willfully accepted by either side. The attack happened at Finsbury Mosque which has been a hotbed for terrorist activity in London for some time. Not that that condones the attack in any way at all, but it gives a bit of any idea of what was going through the head of the attacker - who is in no way absolved of his crime either.

Never thought I'd say this, but the government really needs to step up and control this shit before more and more people are radicalized and instead of responding with 1 attack for every dozen or so, they start trading kills 1 for 1.

I know MSN was reporting a car ran over people but no other info. If this is true just shows the problem with people. Someone of one group kills people that are kind of like me so I will kill people that are of the same group or similar to the original killers. Been like that since beginning of time and sadly will be like that when the final end comes.

And people like this give ISIS more stuff for their brainwashing. Like the scum who attacked manchester and london he needs to be locked up for life.

The worrying thing is the more attacks happen the more people will take law into their own hands

I think people really need to call for Sadiq Khan's resignation and put into place someone who can control this rapidly deteriorating situation.


Laws and policies of how people in the UK are interviewed, arrested and detained isn't up to the London mayor though, as far as I know. It's not a state it's just a city in the UK.

The issue is, if you know of hate preachers, other than keeping a police car outside their door 24/7 what do you do. And if you decide to justify a change in the rights of citizens you need to be specific with the language so it's not used against people that are anti-government 10 years down the line (which is why I'm a huge proponent for free speech).

Looking at this on the news right now. Saying things about how people in London are thinking it's a terrorist attack, while cops don't want to jump to any conclusions just yet.

Either way, it's still messed up, especially with all these vehicles you keep hearing about mowing multiple people down lately.

Yes. I'm a proponent of universal free speech too.

But let's be realistic here. UK is a country that has no problem sending people to jail for not paying their TV license and yet has problems jailing known terrorists? I used to joke about it, but now I'm serious because this is getting to the levels of severe mental retardation.

Brits send people to jail for hate speech all the time. Why does the issue of protecting hate speech come up when it's to protect Islamist extremists?

Anyways, this thread isn't about Islamism anyways. This thread is about a break down in law and order under a mayor who has gone on TV claiming that he doesn't have the resources to fight crime, but then finds 1.7 million pounds to fund social media policing. A man who allows people to fly Hamas flags around the city but bans ads with bikinis.

If you can't see the rife hypocrisy and web of retarded laws in England right now, then you're not fully aware of the mess they've created in their society and have partly brought this doom upon themselves.

Totally unsurprising that some cis white male scum would culturally appropriate the Islamic Truck of Peace and use it to promote his fascist views. :kappa

In all seriousness, the only ones who benefit from this are ISIS like @Roy Mustang said.

Suspect was wrestled to ground and held by bystanders

Someone may have been stabbed by suspect

Suspect allegedly screaming that he wanted to "Kill all Muslims"

Wonder if he's a BNP or other right fringe nationalist party member or some random "self-radicalized" or whatever

White guy targeting Muslims? Not terrorism, he's just mentally ill obviously.

Reading comprehension clearly not a strong suit in this section.
On a second read I did misinterpret your comments a bit. That said, you're still victim blaming so I won't edit or delete my responses.
