    Default Van hits worshippers outside mosque in London's Finsbury Park

    Several pedestrians have been injured after being hit by a van in a "major incident" near a mosque in London.

    Witnesses said the vehicle veered off the road into worshippers leaving prayers in Finsbury Park shortly after midnight.

    “From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside," a woman who lives opposite the scene told the BBC.

    "Everybody was shouting: 'A van'€™s hit people, a van€'s hit people'.

    “There was this white van stopped outside Finsbury Park mosque that seemed to have hit people who were coming out after prayers had finished.”

    Footage showed injured people motionless on the pavement as angry crowds surrounded a white man believed to be the driver.

    A witness told Buzzfeed News up to 10 people were injured, before passers-by managed to restrain the driver after he left the van.

    A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said officers were called to a "major incident" at 12.20am.

    "Officers are on the scene with other emergency services," he added. "There are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene. There has been one person arrested. Enquiries continue."

    Police did not confirm claims Muslims were targeted after leaving a mosque following Tarawih prayers performed for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

    Harun Khan, Secretary General of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: “Shocked and outraged to hear a van has intentionally run over worshippers leaving Ramadan night prayers.”

    As unconfirmed reports swirled, former EDL leader Tommy Robinson, real name Stephen Lennon, was condemned for accusing the mosque of past links with extremists.

    “I genuinely hope the innocent people targeted tonight outside the mosque are ok,” he later wrote on Twitter.

    It was unclear whether worshippers had been leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque or nearby Muslim Welfare House, which said the incident happened "five minutes from us".

    The London Ambulance Service did not immediately confirm details of casualties.

    The amount of Van accidents are becoming concerning. Starting to happen more often now.

    Been following this through the night, will be interesting to see how the story narrative develops.

    A terrible way to go, hopefully the death toll remains low and there is some justice.

    I suggest this is an isolated incident, the comment gets removed

    meanwhile in another thread someone suggests I'm an ISIS supporter, but that's fine

    Yes, lets make a thread about people dying all about you again.

    O/T with the limited info it sounds to me like it could be a revenge attack. I hope it's not the start of a trend. Despite what some people think it is never good when a senseless act like this takes innocent lives, doesn't matter what race or religion they are.
    All my posts should be treated as sarcasm unless stipulated otherwise.
