London van incident 'potential terrorist attack'

19 June, 12:00 PM

One person was killed and 10 injured when a van ploughed through a crowd of people as they were leaving a mosque in London.

Emergency services rushed to Finsbury Park in the early hours of Monday (June 19) after reports that a vehicle rammed into pedestrians.

The 48-year-old male driver of the van "was found detained by members of the public at the scene and then arrested by police," a police statement said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the incident was being treated "as a potential terrorist attack".

Britain is on edge after a series of recent attacks involving vans, including one earlier this month, when Islamic militants mowed down eight people.
