According to Daily Mail:
More than ten pedestrians were hit by a van which veered onto a pavement near a renowned north London mosque late last night, according to reports.
Several people were reportedly hurt after the van ploughed into a crowd outside Finsbury Park Mosque, where hate cleric Abu Hamza once preached, as they finished Ramadan evening prayers called taraweeh.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing bystanders wrestle the suspect to the floor and pin him down until officers arrived.
Emergency service crews were also spotted trying giving cardiac massages to the injured in a desperate bid to save them.
Twitter users claimed the victims were Muslims leaving late-night prayers being observed for the month of Ramadan.
Images on Twitter appeared to show a clean-shaven white man with black hair being detained by police officers behind a van, surrounded by a group of shouting onlookers.
