The man accused of driving a van into a group of people outside a London mosque early Monday shouted that he wanted to "kill all Muslims" as he was restrained by members of the public after the attack, witnesses say. 

The 48-year-old man also yelled "I'd do it again," witnesses say.

 One person died and 10 others were injured in the attack near the Finsbury Park Mosque in north London and police say the incident has "all the hallmarks of terrorism," the Telegraph reports. The latest:

  • Witnesses say the mosque's imam helped protect the attacker after local people detained him after the attack and started hitting him, the Guardian reports "The leader of the mosque said ‘You do not touch him,'" one witness says. "He was sitting and holding him like that, people kept holding him. All the police and helicopters came after around eight minutes."
