Finsbury Park attacker 'disturbed' but not 'racist'

Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster said he was appalled at the attack and assured Muslim leaders "of our prayers and support".

British health authorities on Tuesday said seven people remained hospitalised.

British media have identified the suspect held in connection with the van attack outside a London mosque as Darren Osborne, from the Welsh city of Cardiff.

Some residents, including British born Muslims, described the frustration and unease they've experienced following the series of terrorist attacks. A 48-year-old man was arrested after the collision with pedestrians outside the Muslim Welfare House, police said.

Ms May and Jeremy Corbyn visited the scene of Monday's attack on Seven Sisters Road to offer their solidarity to the local community, along with Home Secretary Amber Rudd and London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Forensic officers move the van at Finsbury Park in north London, where a vehicle struck pedestrians in north London Monday, June 19, 2017.

"Mohammed was the hero of the day, he was the one who contained the guy and held him up until the police came and took him away", Kacimi told the Standard. Many police cars and ambulances were responding.

The attacks, which have left 34 dead and scores wounded, have polarized some sections of Britain, already divided over the decision to leave the European Union in a vote that was largely fueled by racist, anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric fanned by right-leaning tabloids. Police say a vehicle struck pedestrians on a road in north London, leaving several casualties and one person has been arrested.

"After the London Bridge attacks, the social media was [in] overdrive with hate against mosques", said Shaukat Warraich, head of Faith Associates, a Muslim non-profit group in London that recently issued a report to mosques recommending enhanced security measures in the wake of Islamist attacks.

"I'm at my wit's end". Osborne's mother, sister and nephew said in a statement: "We are massively in shock, it's unbelievable". He was detained by members of the public before police arrived.

"While all the rhetoric from the Conservative government has been about Islamic fundamentalism, it has largely ignored the rising threat from white extremists who are every bit as unsafe and depraved as any other terrorist", he said.

But on Saturday, she said Osborne approached her 12-year-old son and called him "inbred".

The man suspected of driving the van was arrested on suspicion of "the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder", police said.

"How many people know that?" asked Mr Omar Hussain, a community worker.

Other neighbors said that Osborne's behavior had become erratic in recent weeks, and that he was living in a tent alone in the woods after splitting up with his long-term partner. But when he and his team looked at terrorism more comprehensively, including regions like the Middle East and Africa, it became clear that Muslims are most frequently targeted, he said.
