One man is dead and ten have been injured in this most recent Terror Attack in the United Kingdom. Eight people were taken to the hospital, with many of them in serious condition. All of the victims are believed to be Muslim.

A 48-year-old white male drove a van into pedestrians as Muslims left the Muslim Welfare House in Finsbury Park, London. The victims were leaving important evening prayers a few minutes after midnight, following the end of their Ramadan fast.

Within 8 minutes of the attack, the Metropolitan Police identified it as an act of terrorism, but police believe the attacker was acting alone.

Politicians respond to the Finsbury Park terror attack

Prime Minister Theresa May released a statement outside of Downing Street saying the attack was "a reminder that terrorism, extremism, and hatred take many forms; and our determination to tackle them must be the same whoever is responsible."

It is unknown whether this most recent incident will affect the Prime Minister's struggle to form a minority government, which is contingent upon her deal with the DUP.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said, "An attack on a mosque, an attack on a synagogue, an attack on a church is actually an attack on all of us.

We have to protect each other's faith, each other's way of life, and that's what makes us a strong society and community."

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said, "While this appears to be an attack on a particular community, like the terrible attacks in Manchester, Westminster, and London Bridge, it is also an assault on all our shared values of tolerance, freedom, and respect." Khan also reassured London citizens and visitors that there would be an increase in police presence following the attack.

This was the fourth terror attack in the United Kingdom in as many months, but the British people seem just as resilient as before, clearly demonstrated by the message from staff at the Finsbury Park Underground Station: "Tough Times Don't Last. Tough People Do.

Stick Together, All of Us"

How it compares to other recent terror attacks in the United Kingdom

Following so soon after the attacks on Westminster Bridge, Manchester, and London Bridge, the terror attack also brings to mind other hurts. By using a van to purposely hit pedestrians, it seems to mimic the other London attacks: atrocities at London Bridge and Westminster Bridge.

However, there seem to be three main differences: firstly, it does not appear that the attacker left his vehicle to continue on foot with a knife; secondly, he seems to have had a very specific target in mind, rather than trying to injure as many people as possible; and thirdly, the attacker is an older white male rather than a younger Muslim male.

According to Security Minister Ben Wallace, this attacker was not known to security services. However, from January to March of this year, 16% of all terror-related arrests were considered "domestic extremism" and concerns have been raised regarding right-wing extremist views in addition to the threat from radical Islamic terrorism.
