London’s Metropolitan Police have announced they are “dealing with a major incident” on Seven Sisters Road, when a van reportedly ran over several people as they were leaving a mosque just shortly after midnight.
The worshippers had been attending Ramadan night prayers at the Finsbury Park Mosque. A “number of casualties” are being treated, and one person has reportedly been arrested, according to CBS News.
The Muslim Council of Britain sent out a Twitter post confirming the attack, saying, “We have been informed that a van has run over worshippers as they left #FinsburyPark Mosque. Our prayers are with the victims.”
This is a developing story.
