A vehicle has struck pedestrians "leaving a number of casualties" in north London, police said.

One person has been arrested following the incident on Seven Sisters Road in Finsbury Park.

Hopefully it was just an accident and everyone is OK but it's not looking likely... the reports on TV suggest there could be casualties.

They hit Muslims coming out of a mosque. So I'm guessing there won't be the same kind of outrage.

Horrible incident. Really pleased to see the BBC reporter on the scene of the attack call this an act of terror - even if the BBC itself is only calling it a major incident.

Members of the public detained a 48 year old man who is the suspected driver or one of the people in the van who was shouting "I want to kill muslims".

I just read about it. It won't be called a hate or terror crime.

But this literally spreads fear and panic across the Muslim community. It's so frustrating.
RIP.

That's horrible! Anothee disgusting act of terrorism hit London again :( The city doesn't get time to recover :(

My thoughts and prayers towards the victims and their families!

Btw, it already got media coverage and it is still "early". Saying it will get "less coverage" is bullshit at this time.
Also, according to German news, "special anti-terror forces" are investigating and premier Theresa May stated that this incident will be treated as a "potential act of terrorism" and she introduced a special meeting this morning.
Btw, it also takes some time until serious media calls other terror attacks "terror attacks" as well.

Anyway, I am sick and tired of those horrible messages. We already have to face enough brutality and now it seems that a stupid racist man had to spread terror by driving a van into peaceful and innocent people again :( This new way of hitting people with vans ans lorries is just digusting and tragic. :( It deeply saddens me :(

^ I said outrage, not coverage. You won't see a benefit concert or protests over this event. The girl who was killed yesterday wasn't shown on the news at all though.

The victims of the Berlin terror attack didn't get a benefit concerts or protest either. I think it is more a question of mentality. Also, The attack in Manchester was a bit different because it happened directly at the venue and concert attendees were targeted. Fans of Ariana and she herself decided to do this special benefit concert.

Since it happened in front of a mosque, I think it still can lead to peaceful protest like praying in mosques for the victims and I can see many outrage when it comes to politicans because it seems it will be a hate crime and it will definitely be responsible of meany heated debates of rising racism, fear among Muslim communities, our societies duties to act, etc.

It is too easy and early to write everything off. Of course, it will be a bit different now because not as many children got targeted and killed and it's the first "very big" attack against Muslims in the UK after a series of other terror attacks carried out by radical Muslim fundamentalists.
I am sure many people will voice their opinion that this horrible attack can't be "the answer" or "justified by any means" and that it needs to be treated like the previous attacks.

When it comes to the girl, may her soul rest in peace, what a horrible way to be killed :(

Shouldn't be a new topic be opened for the current terror attack in london?

A part of me believes that it's wrong to use this thread as a "universal London terror attack thread", It would be like it's already so frequent that we expect some updates here.

Then we need at least new forum section for terrorist attacks.

A man in a van drove into people who were leaving the mosque after their nightly prayers. One person has died and 10 are injured. The terrorist has been arrested.

It's scary that these vehicle attacks are becoming the new form of terrorist attacks.

It'll be interesting to see how this pans out. Mosques have been getting a lot of heat lately as 'safe spaces' for terrorists, so it seems like this was a direct retaliation to that.

Thank you for opening a separate topic for this horrible terror attack.
It would have been strange to continue talking about it in the other London terror attack thread.

R.I.P to the innocent victim who got killed in this disgusting terror attack and I hope that the other injured people will recover soon.

It's insane how much London, one of the core parts of our European continent, has to suffer so much lately! It deeply saddens me and I hope that soon, people will understand that Islam doesn't equal terror. Nothing has been confirmed yet but since it's a white man who drove into Muslims on purpose, I think it was a hate crime (maybe "revenge"?) but this thought is disgusting and his actions can't be justified by any means. We already have enough to suffer from terror attacks, there's already enough violence on Earth and it always hits the wrong people, the innocent people.

Religions should unite people and be peaceful; churches, sikh temples, mosques, etc. should be a safe place :(
