LONDON, United Kingdom – At least one person has been confirmed dead and ten others injured when a man last night drove a van into a crowd of worshipers as they were leaving the mosque in North London.
The attacker was however restrained and held down by worshipers to prevent him from hurting other people until policemen arrived the scene.
As we held him, he was scratching, kicking and saying, “you guys deserve this”, an eye witness said, regarding the London mosque attack.
