MORE TERROR IN LONDON: Attacker Plows Van Into Victims As They Exit Local Mosques After Evening Prayers

Authorities say one person is dead in north London and at least 10 are injured after a man drove a vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians near a local mosque as evening prayers let out.

The incident occurred shortly after midnight on Monday and is being investigated as a potential terrorist attack.

London’s Metropolitan Police say a 48-year-old man, who was detained by members of the public at the scene, has been arrested.

Numerous media outlets reported that the man, who drove a large van into a group of innocent bystanders, yelled...

Kill me, kill me, I want to kill all Muslims." and "You deserve this, You guys deserve this

Bystanders have reported that the man took repeated runs at the victims as they lay helpless on the street.

Of the ten people were reported to have been injured in the attack, eight of whom were taken to the hospital, and two people had been treated at the scene.

The U.K.’s Muslim Council says the attack occurred near the Muslim Welfare House, a community center down the road from several local mosques.

The attacker may have chosen these mosques as they have been holding evening prayers for the holy month of Ramadan and have hosted hundreds of worshippers over the past week.

The deadly tragedy in London comes the same day as authorities arrested a man in Virginia in connection with the murder of a 17-year-old girl leaving a local mosque.
