It’s become an all too common trend – attackers driving vans into crowded streets.

This time, the victims were all Muslim, as they left the Finsbury Park Mosque in London after a midnight prayer.

It happened during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. At least one person has died. Ten others are injured.

Bystanders tackled and held the 48-year old attacker as he tried to leave the van. Police now have him in custody.

Prime Minister Theresa May says police declared this a terrorist attack within eight minutes, and that counter-terrorism police are now investigating.

But what’s behind the rise in these types of attacks? And how will it impact Britain’s diverse society?
