London mayor says attack near mosque is an assault on shared values

At least one person was killed and 10 injured when a van was driven into a group of people outside a north London mosque early Monday, police said.

"Police have confirmed this is being treated as a potential terrorist attack", May said. "From the window, I started hearing a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of chaos outside. … Everybody was shouting: "A van’s hit people, a van’s hit people", one woman who lives opposite the scene told the BBC. "Eight people injured were taken to three separate hospitals", police said in a statement, adding that two other people were treated for minor injuries. "The crowd, they did not understand what was going on". "Some of them he took a few meters (along the road)".

Amateur video footage showed at least three people on the ground in the aftermath of the attack, with one man receiving mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
