Very early local time in London, reports indicate that a van drove into a crowd on Seven Sisters Road. The Independent was one of the first outlets to relay news that London police received an initial call at 12:20am involving “a number of casualties” near Finsbury Park Mosque, although authorities have not yet confirmed that the incident was specifically targeted at this venue.
CNN followed up with confirmation that ambulance services arrived on Seven Sisters Road. London Metropolitan Police have providing few other details thus far, except that “there has been one person arrested.” At this time, it’s not known whether the vehicle intentionally or accidentally struck the pedestrians.
Two weeks ago, London was also the site of terror attacks on and near London Bridge. During that event, a vehicle killed multiple pedestrians before attackers entered a nearby restaurant and began stabbing people. Within minutes of the first calls to emergency services, police shot and killed the three suspects in those attacks.
This is a developing situation, and we will report additional details as they arrive.
