Eyewitness Khalid Amin said that when people seized the driver, "he was shouting: "All Muslims, I want to kill all Muslims".

"I was on my bike and he just came up to me and said "in-bred".

The terrorist attack on a Finsbury Park mosque early Monday has led any number of right-wing media outlets to question how suspect Darren Osborne was radicalized.

"I have assured the leadership of the mosque and the Muslim welfare centre of our prayers and support", he said.

Police have said that it is believed the middle-aged man, who neighbors say recently separated from the mother of his children, acted alone, and there is no known link to any far-right organization.

One person died at the scene although it is not yet clear if this was the result of the attack.

'My son is no terrorist - he's just a man with problems and I don't know how to cope with all this.

Those atrocities have been widely condemned by the Muslim community in Britain who are horrified by these appalling attacks and simply wish to live in harmony with their neighbours.

People at the scene described how he allegedly shouted "I'm going to kill all Muslims" - I did my bit' after attacking the crowd gathered on the pavement.

British health authorities say seven of the people who were struck remain in hospital.
