U.K. Police Investigating Van Attack in London as Terrorism

posted on June 19, 2017

The New York Times’s Dan Bilefsky reports that a terrorist attack in London left one person dead and at least 10 wounded, after a van struck a group of pedestrians near a mosque on Monday. It was unclear if the death was a direct result of the attack. The driver of the van, a 48-year-old white man, was arrested after bystanders prevented him from escaping. Bilefsky writes, “Residents of London, a multicultural city with a large Muslim population and a Muslim mayor, Sadiq Khan, have predominantly responded with equanimity, solidarity and tolerance toward Muslims after recent attacks perpetrated by extremists.”
