LONDON (AP) London police, already stretched by a series of major incidents around the capital, are putting more officers on the street to reassure the public after a driver plowed into a crowd of people leaving a mosque early Monday. One man died at the scene and 10 people were injured.
Police say a suspect was arrested immediately after the attack, which is being treated as a terrorist incident.
"Extra officers are on duty in the area to help reassure the local community," Police Commissioner Cressida Dick said. "They will be there for as long as they are needed. Communities will see additional officers patrolling across the city and at Muslim places of worship."
Police said the 48-year-old man who was driving the van has been arrested and taken to a hospital as a precaution. He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. It was not immediately clear why no charge had been made in relation to the one death.

Hard not to be amused.
Muzzie did it. And increased patrols at mosques. Isn’t that special?
False flag so muzzies can say they are victims too.
Maybe he was driving under the influence? Or maybe he's a fellow muzz slime? If the latter, this story will disappear faster than a tray of donuts inside Mike Moore's movie trailer.
Don’t you have to be connected to an officially recognized card carrying terrorist organization for something to be called “terrorism” in the media?
Isn’t all else a lone wolf incident of unknown motive?
Last night there were reports that the driver (or a passenger?) got out after the van hit people and started stabbing/cutting with a knife.
I still haven’t heard that detail in any radio news or discussion coverage.
No reason to be alarmed
Oh, and forgot to add that this is just life in a large city.
sounds like Mohammmmm, kill them all, ooops I have no one left
The story says the driver got out and the imam stopped muslims from attacking him.
It was not immediately clear why no charge had been made in relation to the one death.
because he was a muzzie? Police plead for calm, hands up pants down runaway, nice tactic
Did someone hear him holler Aluha Akbar? If not than it was most likely a hate crime or revenge for all those terrorist attacks
I heard a reporter refer to him as a white man.

What is the driver was the Father of someone killed in Manchester or the bridge or the stabbing attack and got drunk after having his father’s day without his kid...
If they released the guy’s name it would be connected to a victim and everyone would say “Yeah he was justified in a fit a grief”
That is my theory, time will tell if it is true...
"...maybe a fellow muzzslime..."
Muslims sure do love to kill - don’t they?
Of course they prefer to kill ‘Jooz’ and other infidels but are perfectly content to kill each other too.
If there were only two living beings left on the planet and they were both muslims, one would kill the other.
I looked at a couple ‘recent’ reports online (via google news search). Washington Post, CNN, and Daily Mail.
Some details are starting to emerge.
An elderly man collapsed prior to the attack. It’s unclear if he was collapsed because of the heat or a health condition. He was being attended to when the driver struck. Apparently he died afterwards. It’s still unclear whether he was hit in the incident.
I’ve seen no further remarks reported about “knives” at the scene and while one report indicates there may have been 2 passengers who fled the scene, I didn’t see any reference to them attacking those on the street.
I’ve seen it reported as a rental van (and in some incidents vehicles have been stolen). The name of the company on the van has been released, the owner of the company refused to talk to the media.
Video from the scene of the attack is circulating. Daily Mail has some links to footage.
Daily Mail said that police responded to the scene in 8 minutes, an iman or someone said that he had to hold the driver for 30 minutes.
The mosque reportedly was a former hotbed for extremism but reports also say that has ended over a decade ago.
Nothing would justify vigilantism.
No charge for the one death because the deceased was already being attended to before the attack. They are trying to determine if the impact with the crowd had any effect on the elderly man.
Islamic terrorists have killed 1263 people in the last 23 days alone.
To equate the threat of ‘right wing terror’ with that is dishonest.
“False flag so muzzies can say they are victims too.”
I thought the same thing when I heard a bunch of muzz on TV screaming “We are terrorized!”
