London mosque attacker protected from mob

Condemning the incident, Prime Minister Theresa May said: "This is a bad incident", adding, "All my thoughts are with those who have been injured, their loved ones, and the emergency services on the scene".

He said that there nearly always a spike in hate crime against Muslims after Islamist-inspired attacks.

Hundreds of people joined a vigil in Finsbury Park less than 24 hours after Muslims were mowed down in a terror attack outside a mosque.

The Guardian also spoke to Osborne's neighbour, who said the suspect had called a 12-year-old Muslim neighbour an "inbred" and had been thrown out of a pub for getting drunk, "cursing Muslims and saying he would do some damage". Police shot and killed the three Islamic extremists who carried out the attack. "We're not going to let them", said Mayor Sadiq Khan, speaking after prayers at the Muslim Welfare House on Monday evening.

For all the efforts made to bring communities and faiths together in the fight against terrorism, there are people in the United Kingdom who do not want to know, have no interest in reason, and will use a terror attack on this country as justification for exercising their prejudice. Inevitably, it will be used by recruiters and propagandists to incite further attacks - extremism breeds extremism. Finsbury Park Mosque has undergone its own dramatic reforms, too, with its extremist edges stripped away.

In 2014, the mosque won a prestigious award for its services to the community.

The Muslim Council of Britain confirmed that worshippers had been targeted in the attack.

The Muslim Welfare House released a statement calling for calm.

"Our community is in shock", he said, urging people attending prayers to remain vigilant.

"He said, 'I'd do it again, ' " Rana said. May vowed to provide extra police resources to protect mosques. "He picked this area well, and he knows Finsbury Park is predominantly a Muslim area".

Mrs May who visited the attack scene, said Londoners had shown their resolve in the face of previous terror atrocities and the Grenfell Tower blaze.

Ms May said the attack was "every bit as sickening as those which have come before". She also hailed the "bravery" of those who detained the driver at the scene.

But she said Britain was "determined never to give in to hate".

"People are going to wake up tomorrow.communities from all different backgrounds, and they're going to be in shock to hear worshipers in front of a mosque were attacked in the same way that people were attacked on the London Bridge", he said.

Conservative Home Secretary Amber Rudd said the attack is being treated "as a terrorist incident", with the investigation being led by the Counter Terrorism Command.
