    RT — At least one dead and 10 injured are reported in London’s Finsbury Park, where a vehicle drove into pedestrians, many of whom are believed to be Muslims coming out of the local mosque after prayers. Police have arrested one person and ambulances are on the scene.

    The man who died is believed to have been an elderly worshipper who was already receiving first aid from members of the public after collapsing. It is not known if his death was caused by the attack, police said.

    London’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement that “there are a number of casualties being worked on at the scene” of the apparent attack, which took place at Seven Sisters Road.

    A white van ploughed into people outside the Muslim Welfare House, close to the Finsbury Park Mosque. The suspected attacker has been described as a white male, and is seen being arrested in an eyewitness video. Police did not immediately disclose his identity, only revealing that he is 48 years old.
