ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. British Prime Minister Theresa May called Monday's (June 19) incident at a mosque in Finsbury, London a "sickening attempt" to divide the country. "This morning we have seen a sickening attempt to break those bonds of citizenship that define our United Kingdom" said the Prime Minister. "It is a reminder that terrorism, extremism and hatred take many forms and our determination to tackle them must be the same no matter who is responsible." A van ploughed into worshippers leaving a London mosque on Monday, injuring 10 people in what witnesses said was a deliberate attack on Muslims. One man, who was already being given first aid at the scene before the vehicle was driven into pedestrians, has died but police said it was not clear whether his death was directly linked. Eight others are in hospital, with two in a very serious condition.
