A man was killed and eight people were injured when a suspected terrorist drove a van into pedestrians near a mosque in north London. A 48-year-old man was arrested after swerving into a group of Muslims who were leaving evening prayers shortly after midnight. Two witnesses said that the driver got out of the vehicle after hitting about ten people and screamed that he wanted to “kill all Muslims”. Theresa May said police were treating the attack, outside an Islamic community centre and close to Finsbury Park mosque, as a “potential terrorist incident”.
