London vehicle hits pedestrians, police say 'number of casualties'

London vehicle hits pedestrians, police say 'number of casualties'

This story is on cnn right now. I looked at the Washington Post and the BBC and they have no mention of this yet.

CNN is saying authorities have not yet announced whether this was an accident or intentional incident. There are several casualties. There is one person in custody. It is possible this may have been directed at a mosque in the area named The Finnsbury Park Mosque.

Eyewitnesses said the terrorist (yeah, that's what he is) expressly stated that he was trying to kill Muslims.

While I did not hear that, not watching the coverage very intently, they also said 2-3 men ran from the van. Police are playing their cards very close the the chest while probably looking for these 2-3 others (depending on your eyewitness source).

Clip showing man who performed a citizen's arrest on the driver, confirms he was trying to kill Muslims.

Finsbury Park attack: Man dies as van hits worshippers - BBC News

Finsbury Park attack: What we know so far - BBC News

Quote:
A man has died and 10 people have been injured after a man drove a van into worshippers near a north London mosque.

The van struck people after mounting the pavement just after midnight BST outside Muslim Welfare House, near Finsbury Park Mosque. A 48-year-old man has been arrested
.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said police were treating it as a "terrorist incident".

Eyewitness Abdul Rahman said the driver said he wanted to "kill all Muslims".

Mr Rahman told the BBC he struck the man and helped subdue him.

"When the guy came out from his van he wanted to escape, run away and he was saying 'I want to kill Muslims. 'I want to kill Muslims.'

"I hit him on his stomach... and then me and the other guys... we held him to the ground until he couldn't move. We stopped him until the police came."

Counter-terrorism officers are at the scene, the Metropolitan Police said.

Kudos to the men who restrained the terrorist *AND* also protected his life from an (understandably) angry crowd. That takes some massive guts, and a really strong set of ethics.

I'm not sure I'd be that strong.

Oh, just wait and see. The Daily Fail and its ilk will somehow manage to blame the Muslims for this attack.

I was going to cheer Rowling's third degree burn of Farage but I realized that he probably has no idea what she's talking about. Is it a burn if the target is oblivious to it?

He had time to tweet this 35 minutes ago: "The Dems want to stop tax cuts, good healthcare and Border Security.Their ObamaCare is dead with 100% increases in P's. Vote now for Karen H"

but silence about London which is typical for him when white people attack. He hasn't blamed the London mayor (yet) either.

Please note I am saying nothing about that apostrophe. But I'm thinking a lot.

Finsbury Park attack suspect named as Darren Osborne

Quote:
The man arrested on suspicion of carrying out the Finsbury Park terror attack is 47-year-old Darren Osborne from Cardiff, the BBC understands.
He was held after a van hit Muslims who had been attending evening prayers at a north London mosque.
They had been helping a man who had collapsed. He later died but it is not clear if it was because of the attack.
Mr Osborne was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and later further arrested over alleged terror offences.

This incident risks playing right into the hands of those planning further attacks on vulnerable citizens in the UK.
Online followers of the so-called Islamic State have been quick to seize on the Finsbury Park attack as proof of what they see as widespread hostility towards Muslims who live in the West. Inevitably, it will be used by recruiters and propagandists to incite further attacks - extremism breeds extremism.
The one thing that far right anti-Muslim extremists and violent jihadists have in common is the belief that peaceful coexistence between Muslim and non-Muslim is impossible.
The unified prayers and solidarity across communities that followed recent terror attacks are anathema to them. Extremists of both types want instead to divide society and will keep trying to bring this about by criminal acts of provocation such as this.
Auntie Beeb, huh?
