“The driver of the van that plowed into pedestrians near a mosque in north London is being named as Darren Osborne, 47, a resident of Cardiff in Wales, according to multiple UK media outlets.

One man died and 10 people were injured in the assault, the latest in a series of terror attacks to hit the UK this year.
The driver, a white man, was wrestled to the ground by members of the public and then arrested at the scene, officials said. He was being held on suspicion of terrorism offenses, police said.
Eyewitnesses reported chaotic scenes as the incident unfolded just after midnight, when evening Ramadan prayers had finished.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said the attack was directed at Muslims and condemned it as ‘every bit as sickening’ as deadly Islamist attacks that hit the country in recent months.” Read more here…
