Man given life for Finsbury Park terror attack

Darren Osborne was convicted of murder and attempted murder

Sue Hemming from the CPS said: "Darren Osborne planned and carried out this attack because of his hatred of Muslims".

The 48-year-old from the Welsh city of Cardiff then drove around the English capital until he settled on the target in Finsbury Park just before midnight.

Far-right loner Darren Osborne, 48, was convicted in less than an hour over the van attack on a crowd of worshippers in June past year.

A 51-year-old man, Makram Ali, was killed and 12 people were injured when Osborne drove a rented van into people leaving evening prayers during Ramadan.

Prosecutor Jonathan Rees QC said Osborne was trying to kill "as numerous group as possible" when he drove a heavy box van into Muslims gathered at the junction of Seven Sisters Road and Whadcoat Street.

Woolwich Crown Court announced the punishment on Friday, a day after finding Darren Osborne guilty.

Another man in the group remembered the defendant - who was "constantly smiling" after he had been detained - saying: "I've done my job, you can kill me now", he said.

In court, he had attempted to defend himself against the charges of murder and attempted murder by claiming that an accomplice named Dave had taken his place in the driver's seat during the attack.

Richardson says Suu Kyi living in a 'bubble'
There is a "power bubble that has been created around her", filled with people who "tell her how great things are", he said. Duterte said he had a chance to talk to Suu Kyi, Myanmar's state counselor, and told the latter not to mind her critics.

The head of the Metropolitan Police counter-terrorism command, Dean Haydon, said: "Osborne's evil and cowardly actions meant a family has tragically lost a husband, father and grandfather".

His estranged girlfriend, Sarah Andrews, said the "total loner" had become "brainwashed" and "obsessed" with Muslims since watching a TV drama about the Rochdale grooming scandal in May a year ago, along with two subsequent terror attacks in the UK.

Ruzina Akhtar, daughter of Ali, told reporters that the family was "very pleased with the guilty verdict".

She said Ali died immediately after being struck by the van.

She said: "Our father, like the victims of most terrorism, was entirely innocent, which makes his death in this violent way all the more hurtful. He said, "I have done what I am supposed to do".

Witnesses said Osborne shouted that he wanted to "kill all Muslims".

The mayor was identified by loner Osborne during his trial when he told the court that counting Mr Khan among the victims would have been "like a lottery win".
