Murder charge for UK mosque attack accused

Press Association logoPress Association 23/06/2017

British authorities have charged an unemployed Welsh man with terrorism-inspired murder and attempted murder over a van attack on a crowd of Muslim worshippers near a north London mosque.

Darren Osborne was remanded in custody on Friday after an appearance at Westminster Magistrates Court.

Makram Ali, a 51-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant, died of multiple injuries in the attack and several others were injured.

The attack on Monday has raised tensions in London, which has suffered three previous extremist attacks in the last three months as well as tragic fire that has killed at least 79 people, many of them immigrants.

Police characterised the incident, which came as worshippers were leaving after prayers marking the holy month of Ramadan, as a terrorist attack directed at Muslims.
