London

London: A van ploughed into worshippers leaving a London mosque on Monday, killing at least one person and injuring several.

The vehicle hit people as they were leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque, one of the biggest in the country, sources said.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said police had confirmed it was being treated as a potential terrorist attack and said she would chair an emergency response meeting later on Monday.

One man was pronounced dead at the scene and that the van driver (48) had been detained by members of the public before being arrested. The driver would undergo a mental health assessment in due course, police said.
