LONDON - London police, already stretched by a series of major incidents around the capital, are putting more officers on the street to reassure the public after a driver ploughed into a crowd of people leaving a mosque early Monday. One man died at the scene and 10 people were injured.
Police say a suspect was arrested immediately after the attack, which is being treated as a terrorist incident.
"Extra officers are on duty in the area to help reassure the local community,'' police commissioner Cressida Dick said. "They will be there for as long as they are needed. Communities will see additional officers patrolling across the city and at Muslim places of worship.''
