UPDATE: 3:17 a.m. EDT — A witness, who wanted to be identified as Abdul Rahman, said the driver of the van who attacked pedestrians in Finsbury Park, London, tried to escape and was heard saying “I want to kill Muslims,” before being restrained by onlookers, according to the Guardian.
Earlier another witness had also told Buzzfeed News the driver yelled out the same thing.
Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday that authorities were treating the recent attack near Finsbury Park, London “as a potential terrorist attack,” adding: “I will chair an emergency meeting later this morning. All my thoughts are with the victims, their families and the emergency services on the scene,” according to the Guardian.
Authorities confirmed one person had been killed and the attack left 10 others injured, out of which two were treated on the scene. Police said they were dealing with a “major incident” near a mosque in London and had deployed extra officers “to reassure communities, especially those observing Ramadan.”
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan released a statement on Facebook condemning the attack and called it “deliberate” saying it targeted “innocent Londoners, many of whom were finishing prayers during the holy month of Ramadan.”
“While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the terrible attacks in Manchester, Westminster and London Bridge it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom and respect,” he said in his statement.
