There has been another vehicle – pedestrian attack in London. Last night a van struck pedestrians near a mosque in north London, killing one man and injuring 10 others in what police are investigating as a terrorist incident. The 48-year-old man who was driving the van has been arrested and taken to a local hospital. Eyewitnesses have told CNN that they saw a group of bystanders drag the driver out of the white van, pin him to the ground and hit him. The crash occurred as crowds of Muslims were leaving a mosque after late night Ramadan prayers. Muslim leaders label the apparent targeted attack a hate crime and are calling for extra security at mosques.
