London, Monday

British Prime Minister Theresa May vowed to fight terrorism and extremism “whoever is responsible”, after a white van driver ploughed through a crowd of Muslim worshipers near a London mosque on Monday.

Speaking outside her Downing Street residence, May said 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”.

She said the attack was “every bit as sickening as those that have come before”, referring to three Islamist-inspired attacks in London and Manchester this year that have killed 35 people and injured around 200.

The attack “targeted the ordinary and the innocent... this time British Muslims as they left the mosque,” she said, adding that police would provide any additional protection needed for mosques. “This was an attack on Muslims near their place of worship and like all terrorism, it seeks to drive us apart,” she said. - AFP
