This time, the victims had been all Muslim, as they left the Finsbury Park Mosque in London after a midnight prayer.
It occurred in the course of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. At least one particular person has died. Ten others are injured.
Bystanders tackled and held the 48-year outdated attacker as he tried to go away the van. Police now have him in custody.
Prime Minister Theresa May says police declared this a terrorist assault inside eight minutes, and that counter-terrorism police are actually investigating.
But what’s behind the rise in these kind of assaults? And how will it affect Britain’s numerous society?
