A man has been charged over the van attack at Finsbury Park mosque in which one person died and nine others were injured.
Darren Osborne, 47, is accused of plowing the rented vehicle into the group in Finsbury Park in the early hours of Monday morning.
Osborne, a father of four from Cardiff in Wales, was due to appear before magistrates on Friday.
Makram Ali was already receiving treatment for a medical problem when the attack occurred early Monday. The statement Thursday identified Ali and said a special post-mortem examination found that he died of "multiple injuries".
He had come from Bangladesh when he was ten years old and attended the Muslim Welfare House mosque.
Osborne was arrested at the scene after being apprehended by the crowd.
His family has said they were "devastated" by his death.
Police said the man they apprehended was taken to hospital as a precaution and would be taken into custody once discharged, where a mental health assessment would be carried out.
The attack raised fears of retaliation against Muslims after a series of deadly assaults in Britain by Islamist extremists.
