Another terrorist attack :(

This is disgusting, It makes you ashamed to breathe the same air as people like this, as
if we haven’t had enough tragedy in London in the last few days. 

On 19 June 2017, a van was driven into pedestrians in Finsbury Park, London, injuring at least ten people. This occurred near the Muslim Welfare House, 100 yards (90 m) from Finsbury Park Mosque. A group of Muslims had earlier performed Tarawih, nightly prayers held during Ramadan when they came across a collapsed man at a bus stop. While rendering first aid they were rammed, and ten were injured. The collapsed man died at the scene.

The incident is being investigated by the Counter Terrorism Command and has been described by Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, as a “horrific terrorist attack”. One person has been arrested on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder.The motive is still under investigation but several civil rights groups and politicians said the incident represented rising Islamophobia in the United Kingdom 

The suspect was later identified by police as Darren Osborne, a 47-year-old father of four from Cardiff, who grew up in Weston-super-Mare. UK Security Minister Ben Wallace said Osborne was not known to the security services prior to the attack. Osborne’s neighbours in Pentwyn, where Osborne had lived for several years, described him as aggressive and strange but said he was not a racist. Neighbours described him as a “family man”, who was heard singing with his children in the kitchen just hours before the attack, while others believed he and his partner had separated, living in a tent in woodland, in recent months and he was often seen shouting at her in the street.

The suspect allegedly turned against Muslims in the wake of the June 2017 London Bridge attack. He allegedly rented a van in the vicinity of Cardiff, several days before the attack and slept in it during the night. On the eve of the attack, he drove to London, four hours driving distance, prior to carrying out the attack. Witnesses from a local Cardiff pub said the suspect had announced the day before the attack his intention to attack the Al-Quds day march which was held earlier on the day of the attack
