One person has been killed and ten more injured after a white van driver screaming 'I'm going to kill all Muslims' ploughed into worshipers near a renowned north London mosque, in the latest terror attack to rock Britain.

A 48-year-old man has been arrested after the van, which was hired from south Wales, mounted the pavement and veered into a congregation outside the Muslim Welfare House, near Finsbury Park Mosque, shortly after they finished Ramadan evening prayers, known as taraweeh.

Heroic bystanders wrestled the suspect, who was clean-shaven with curly hair and wore a white t-shirt, to the floor and pinned him down until officers arrived, at around 12.20am, after he allegedly screamed: 'I want to kill all Muslims'.

Ealing Times:

One fatality was confirmed at the scene, while a further eight are being treated across three London hospitals and two victims sustained minor injuries.

The Muslim Council of Britain condemned the attack as 'the most violent manifestation' yet of Islamophobia and called for extra security around mosques, which the Met Police has now promised. The Prime Minister has confirmed the incident is being treated as a potential terror attack, as she called an emergency meeting of the Cobra Committee.

Finsbury Park Mosque has undergone wholesale changes and become far more liberal under new leader Mohammed Kozbar, since the days when hook-handed hate preacher Abu Hamza was imam from 1997 until 2003.

The congregation of victims were heroically trying to save an elderly man who had collapsed at a bus stop, according to eyewitnesses, and it is unknown if this is the death recorded.
