Vastavam web: Several people were injured in north London early on Monday when a van rammed into worshipers leaving a mosque, witnesses said, in what British police described as a “major incident”.The Muslim Council of Britain said the vehicle hit people as they were leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque, one of Britain’s largest. The attack comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, when people attend prayers at night.Police said they were called just after 12:20 a.m.(2320 GMT Sunday) to reports of a collision on Seven Sisters Road, which runs through the Finsbury Park area of the city. They said there were a number of casualties and one person had been arrested.
“There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park mosque that seemed to have hit people who were coming out after prayers had finished. I didn’t see the attacker himself, although he seems to have been arrested, but I did see the van.”A man leapt out of the van and stabbed at least one person, the Evening Standard newspaper said, citing witnesses. One witness told it was clear that the attacker at Finsbury Park had deliberately targeted Muslims.”He tried to kill a lot of people so obviously it’s a terrorist attack. He targeted Muslims this time,” the witness, identified only as Rayan, said.
