    UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Monday her thoughts were with "all those affected by the appalling incident at Finsbury Park," urges to stand together against those who try to "spread hate and fear" among the UK nationals.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, a van rammed into pedestrians near the mosque in the northern London, killing one person and injuring eight others.

    The van's driver was detained by the people at the site and later arrested by the Metropolitan Police.

    "My thoughts are with all those affected by the appalling incident at Finsbury Park. I am in contact with the Metropolitan Police who have confirmed it is being investigated by their Counter Terrorism Command. Yesterday, like so many others around the country, I took part in the Great Get Together to celebrate the values of Jo Cox. It was powerful and moving to see the community come together in a show of solidarity. We must all continue to stand together, resolute, against all those who try to divide us and spread hate and fear," Rudd was quoted as saying by The Guardian newspaper.
