On the night of 19 June 2017, at approximately 00:15 BST, a terrorist attack took place in Finsbury Park, London. A white van, from the Pontyclun Van Hire Company (Wales), was driven into pedestrians near the Muslim Welfare House and 90 metres from the Finsbury Park Mosque, injuring ten people and 'possibly' killing one. The tragic event took place while a group of Muslim people were going back home after the night Tarawih prayers (Performed by Sunni Muslims) held during Ramadan. Some of the worshippers were giving first aid to an elderly man who had collapsed at a bus stop (who later died). From Wikipedia: <<[…] Witnesses claimed the driver said "I want to kill all Muslims",and that the attack was "for London Bridge". Worshippers from the mosque and onlookers restrained the attacker. Witnesses said the driver was punched and beaten until the imam of the mosque intervened and halted the beating, asking instead for the driver to be handed over to police. Officers were called at 00:20 BST […]. According to the London Ambulance Service, eight people were taken to area hospitals, and two were treated and released at the scene […]>>. The lone terrorist was named as Darren Osborne, a 47-year-old father of four and jobless from Cardiff, who grew up in Weston-super-Mare.<br />
