Van rams pedestrians near London mosque; 1 dead

Ivanka Trump on Monday expressed solidarity with worshippers attacked while leaving a London mosque, while her father - usually quick to condemn extremist attacks - was silent for the time being. British Prime Minister Theresa May said police were investigating the incident as a terrorist attack.

Photos show a number of police cars are on the scene and the area cordoned off to civilians.

The man suspected of plowing a van into Muslims leaving late-night prayers at a London mosque has now been arrested on terror grounds, police said Monday.

A further nine people were injured and taken to three different hospitals across the capital.

Scotland Yard said they had arrested a 48-year-old man on suspicion of attempted murder.

Some said they heard the van driver, who was detained by members of the public at the scene, shout: "I'm going to kill Muslims".

"We found that a group of people quickly started to collect around him. and some tried to hit him either with kicks or punches".

The leader of the opposition Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn also tweeted about the crash.

Prime Minister Theresa May: "This is a awful incident".

The Muslim cleric who prevented the angry worshippers from harming the suspect of the van attack at a mosque in London's Finsbury Park, has been praised for his "bravery and courage".

Some locals came onto the street in support of the mosque on Monday, carrying signs saying "We love our mixed community" and "Leave our Muslim neighbours alone".

But in retaliation for the recent attacks in London.

"Extra police resources have already been deployed to reassure communities, and police will continue to assess the security needs of mosques and provide any additional resources needed", she said. In particular I pray for the person who has been killed.

"This is being treated as a terrorist attack", said Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu told reporters.

Many at the mosque, and on social media, criticized the police and the media for what they saw as a too-slow decision to label the mosque attack as terror. "We don't yet know the full details, but this was clearly a deliberate attack on innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan".
