Muslim Council of Britain: Van driver deliberately plowed into worshippers in London

LONDON, June 19 - A white man deliberately plowed a van into worshippers near a north London mosque, the Muslim Council of Britain said on Monday, citing witnesses and video from the incident which left several people injured.
"It appears that a white man in a van intentionally plowed into a group of worshippers who were already tending to someone who had been taken ill," the Muslim Council said in a statement.
It said the incident was the most violent manifestation of islamophobia in Britain in recent months and called for extra security at places of worship as the end of the holy month of Ramadan nears.
