“We are deeply shocked by the attack near Finsbury Park Mosque. We pray for the victims of this terrible incident and mourn with those affected.”
According to officials one person died and 11 were injured during the event. The 47-year-old suspect was arrested of attempted murder and of a terror offence.
According to Telegraph the victims were all Muslims and the event is considered as a terrorist attack on the Muslim Community.
"This was quite clearly an attack on Muslims who looked like they were probably Muslims and they were coming from a prayer meeting, Ms. Dick said. We treat this as a terrorist attack. Sadly we have suffered a number of attacks and very sad events over the last few weeks," she added.
