Van hits Muslims after night prayers

Shortly after midnight in North London, a van struck pedestrians who were leaving a well-known mosque after late-night prayers associated with Ramadan. "A Number of patients were also treated at the scene for minor injuries".

Police confirmed they were on the scene of the collision in Finsbury Park and that several people were receiving medical treatment. Eye witnesses described that the white van rammed into people outside the Muslim Welfare House on Seven Sisters Road in Finsbury, London.

Eyewitness told Sky News and other British media that the van seemed to have veered and hit people intentionally. British Prime Minister Theresa May has expressed her grief and said her thoughts were with all those injured in the incident.

The London Ambulance service said it had sent "a number of resources".

The incident followed a series of attacks in Britain. Three Muslim extremists who carried out the attack were killed by police. And after two van attacks since the month of March alone, London is wondering whether the Finsbury Park "incident" is another terrorist attack.
