London Terror Attack Suspect Named By Media

The State Department said Monday that is "strongly condemns last night's attack that appears to have targeted Muslim worshippers in London".

On Monday, just past midnight, a van drove into bystanders outside of London's Finsbury Park Mosque.

At least one person was killed and 10 were injured in the latest terror attack to hit the United Kingdom this year. Police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack.

The probe in the incident led investigators to the Welsh capital Cardiff, where they searched a property said by media to be the home of Darren Osborne. A local imam, Mohammed Mahmoud, said he and others shielded the man until police could take him away.

Witnesses described hearing a man, who was detained by members of the public at the scene, shout: "I'm going to kill Muslims" and "I did my bit".

The PM later met with community leaders on a visit to the mosque in London's Finsbury Park.

A van ploughed into worshipers near a London mosque on Monday, injuring 10 people in what Prime Minister Theresa May said was a sickening, terrorist attack on Muslims.

Many local Muslim worshippers complained that police did not immediately treat the attack as a terrorist incident, saying the response would have been different if it had been an Islamist assault.

Manchester was hit by a deadly attack on May 22 when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

How did Muslim groups react? .

British security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity in line with official policy, said hate crimes directed at Muslims have increased almost five-fold in the wake of several attacks in Britain.

"Over the past weeks and months, Muslims have endured many incidents of Islamophobia and this is the most violent manifestation to date".

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.

Egypt's Al-Azhar institution, a leading authority of Sunni Islam, called it a "racist, sinful act" and urged "Western countries to take all precautionary measures to limit the phenomenon of Islamophobia". "Diverse, welcoming, vibrant, compassionate, confident and determined never to give in to hate", she said in her statement.

After meeting faith leaders at Finsbury Park Mosque on Monday afternoon, she said: 'The awful terrorist attack which took place last night was an evil borne out of hatred and it has devastated a community'.

Mayor Khan called it a "deliberate" and "horrific terrorist attack" on "innocent Londoners".
