Al Azhar condemns van attack on London Muslims

As a Muslim, she said attacks like the one in London can create fear within the Muslim community in Windsor.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster has offered prayers for the victims of a terror attack in north London that targeted worshippers outside a mosque in the early hours of Monday.

The police did not describe the incident as an attack, but they did confirm that investigation of the incident is being carried out by the Counter Terrorism Command.

At a press conference later Monday, Mahmoud credited "other brothers" for assisting in protecting the man from angry onlookers until police arrived.

Osborne was taken into custody and arrested for attempted murder. Eight people injured were taken to three separate hospitals.

He was arrested on suspicion of "the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder", the police said.

Witness Khalid Amin told BBC television "he was shouting: 'I want to kill all Muslims'".

Police said a suspect was quickly and calmly turned over to the police, and that no one else was found in the van.

Earlier this month on London Bridge, attackers used a vehicle and then knives to kill eight people and wound many others on the bridge and in the nearby Borough Market area.

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

Frank reports that Muna Mohamed said one of her relatives suffered a broken back in Monday's attack and is in critical condition.

The Metropolitan Police said there will be more uniformed officers at places of worship, including mosques and Muslim community centres, as they try to reassure local people.

It comes during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Camera footage from the scene shows the man later identified as Osborne screaming "kill me".

Another shouted for her to "come out and talk to us" and protesters called out "May must go". He thinks "police are going to struggle to deal with it if [these attacks are] something that erupts nationwide".

In a similar message to Ahmed Kheloufi, director of Muslim Welfare House, Cardinal Nichols wrote "to assure you of my prayers and of my deep compassion for all who have been injured and affected by this deliberate act of violence".
