In London, Vehicle Hits Pedestrians - Again

Once again, a vehicle has hit pedestrians in London.  This time, however, it was not on any bridge, and the victims, not the suspected perpetrator, are Muslim.  At around 12:20 a.m. British Time, a van struck people who were reportedly leaving the Finsbury Park Mosque after a Ramadan night prayer service.  Twelve people have been reported injured.  The van's driver has been arrested.

Read more at the Express, The Guardian, the Independent, BBC News and The Sun.  Of these articles, The Sun states that two people are "feared dead", but I've found no confirmed reports of fatalities.

UPDATE:  The links now indicate that one victim has died, eight have been taken to hospitals, and two were treated at the scene.  Authorities are now calling the attack an act of terrorism.  The attacker allegedly said that he wanted to "kill all Muslims".
