welcome to 100 days plus. london faces its fourth terror attack in fourth months, with this one targeting muslims. meanwhile here in brussels brexit talks are under way. it is not about revenge or punishment says the eus chief negotiator but don't underestimate the consequences. a terrorist attack is a terrorist attack — says the prime minister — no matter which community is targeted or who perpetrates it. he was shouting, where are all muslims? i want to kill all muslims. literally he said that. arrested under terrorism laws — bystanders pinned down the suspect till the police arrived. he's understood to be 47—year—old darren osborne from the cardiff area. here in brussels, day one of the brexit talks. they have agreed a timetable and a process but can they agree a future trade deal? brexit means brexit. in means in and out means out. if somebody is stepping out they have to come up with a decent proposal and we are waiting. a minute's silence across
the uk for the victims of london's tower block fire. 79 people are now thought to have died. also, the conflict in syria takes another dangerous turn. russia says us—led coalition planes will be treated as targets after an american jet shot down a syrian government warplane. and is donald trump under investigation for obstruction ofjustice or not? he says yes, his own lawyer however seems to disagree. we're confused too. welcome to the programme. the man who drove a van into a group of muslims in north london has been named as darren osborne. he's a 47—year—old from cardiff who was not known to security services. the prime minister said
the country's determination to fight terrorism must be the same, whoever is responsible. the muslim council of britain said the van had been driven at worshippers who'd just left the mosque in finsbury park after ramadan prayers. they were struck on the seven sisters road. members of the public then detained the driver. according to witnesses, he said that he wanted to kill all muslims. here's our correspondent daniel sandford. it was just after midnight in london, and the third attack using a vehicle injust three months. this time, the muslim community was the target. basically drove on the pavement, coming straight towards all the muslims. as he is coming to them, he hit all of them. after the van had crashed through worshippers marking the holy month of ramadan, leaving eight badly injured, men who'd been to late night prayers found themselves wrestling the suspected van
driver to the road. when he was on the ground i asked him, why did you do that, why? you know, innocent people. he goes, i want to kill muslims. after a prolonged struggle, the suspected driver was arrested. the imam had intervened to prevent further violence and he was handed over to the first police officers to arrive. we've flagged them down and told them the situation, there is a man, he is restrained, mowed down a group of people with his van and there is a mob attempting to hurt him, if you don't take him, god forbid he might be seriously hurt. what we proceeded to do, me and 20 people, lift the van and the man who got his leg stuck under it got his leg out, although he was in a critical state, really bad, bleeding from his ears and the rest of his body. the 47—year—old suspect is believed to be darren osborne, a father of four from cardiff,
a man unknown to mi5 but somebody who police are now investigating for any extremist or racist views he may have expressed in the past. by lunchtime, the prime minister had arrived close to the scene of the attack. visiting finsbury park mosque, one of two whose worshippers were caught up in the violence. the terrible terrorist attack that took place last night was an act borne out of hatred and it is has devastated a community. i'm pleased to have been here today, to see the strength of that community, coming together, all faiths united in one desire, to see extremism and hatred of all sorts driven out of our society. there is no place for this hatred in our country today and we need to work together as one society, as one community to drive it out, this evil that is affecting so many families. the prime minister's visit came
up just after 12 hours after the van ploughed into a group of worshippers. theresa may clearly wanting to be seen among the community that was attacked as soon as possible. jeremy corbyn, who is the local mp, was up most of the night talking to his constituents. and visited the scene with the labour mayor of london, sadiq khan. throughout the day the enormity of what had happened and appeared to weigh on the shoulders of politicians from all parties. this is terror on the streets and a terror of the people on the streets, in the communities i'm very proud to represent in parliament, that's why i'm here today. all around the politicians visiting, a huge police forensic operation was under way. the focus, this white van rented in wales. it had turned off the main seven sisters road into a cul—de—sac, hitting the worshippers as it went through.
some of them had been treating a man who was apparently suffering a heart attack. he later died. it is unclear if he was hit by the van. he was the only person who died here last night. this was quite clearly an attack on muslims, who looked like they were probably muslims and they were coming from a prayer meeting. we treat this as a terrorist attack, and we in the net are as shocked and we in the met are as shocked as anybody in this local community and across the country, at what has happened. in this year of terror, the muslim community of north london was a new target, but the consequences of the violence were the same. eight people are still in hospital this evening, some with potentially life changing injuries. daniel stanford, bbc news, finsbury park. well, as we've been hearing, the bbc understands the suspect
to be 47—year—old darren osborne. let's join tomos morgan, who's outside his house in cardiff. what more do we know about mr osborne? we understand the police have been carrying out raids on this president behind me in the north—east of cardiff in connection with the arrest of the 10—year—old, darren osborne. it is understood he has got four children and he has possibly resided here with his partner. i have been speaking to some of the residents who live in this cul—de—sac in the north east of cardiff. mixed reactions. they say that if it is true, they are shocked that someone in their community could have done something like this. i spoke to one individual just something like this. i spoke to one individualjust a few doors down from the house that the police have been raiding, and muslim himself,
and he said he had not been aware of any sort of racist remarks that this gentleman, darren osborne, had said over the years. he had never got that impression from him. he said the children went to the same school and he said he was very shocked and shaken himself if this turns out to be the case, that this individual that lives only a few doors down from him could have committed such an horrific crime in london. we are in cardiff. it is understood the vehicle that was hired to carry out this atrocity was from a village around 10—15 miles away to the north—west of cardiff. we do not yet know when that vehicle was hired, but we do know that that company is working alongside the metropolitan police to give them any information to have for the investigation. these incidents always raised so
many questions and so many troubled issues as well. troubled issues as well. french police are investigating a suspected terrorist attack in the centre of paris after a car crashed into a police van then burst into flames. it happened along one of the best known streets in paris, the champs elysees. various media reports claim the driver was armed. authorities have confirmed that the driver of the car has died. no one else was injured in the attack. clearly officials in britain after the attack last night in finsbury park have been very careful about how they talk about this attack. you had the prime minister and sadiq khan and jeremy corbyn and cressida dick, the head of the met, saying this is terrorism. the message to the muslim community and about what they hear about this attack seems to be important and it is critical they get this right. crucially important to all communities that they get the
message right, not only for the politicians but also the media as well. when you look at the stats regarding islamaphobia commie there have been a two thirds rise on attacks in london and it goes under the radar a bit. there are spikes in these attacks as and when we have terrorist incident in the uk, but the upsetting thing is it is young muslims in schools who are being targeted and it is muslim communities in london and politicians need to address that and the concerns of the community. what you have seen today is people coming out very quickly. within eight minutes they called it a potential terrorist attack and it is crucial from their perspective that they get that message out. it is day one of the brexit talks and an opportunity to reset the tone after some of the mudslinging over the last year, but we learn a few things from the press
conference. the first is we now have a diary and a sequence of events, so by the end of october there will be five week—long meetings between the two sides. the second thing is they are sticking to what the eu wanted to come first, their calendar, so it will be about the separation, the severance will be about the separation, the severance payments, citizens' rights, the crucial issue of the border in ireland. the third important thing which david davis spelt out, for all the talk of softening the brexit deal, we will be leaving the customs union and the single market. that is how it stands today. this is what david davies had today. this is what david davies had to say and also michel barnier. there is more that unites us than divides us. while there will undoubtedly be challenging times ahead of us in the negotiations, we will do all that we can to ensure we deliver a deal that works in the best interest of all citizens. to that end, we are starting this negotiation in a positive and
constructive tone, determined to build a strong and special partnership between ourselves and our european allies and friends for the future. we must first lift the uncertainty caused by brexit. we want to make sure that the withdrawal of the uk happens in an orderly manner. then in the second step, we restore our future partnership. we also agree how we structure our talks. happens in an orderly manner. then in the second step, we restore our future partnership. we also agree how we
and taking back control eagerly, you can replicate the conduct of the single murky. the real basis of the single murky. the real basis of the single murky. the real basis of the single murky is the rule that you say you can't. .. single murky is the rule that you say you can't... i didn't come across anybody in a referendum who was against iraq. be that through this domestic law and through bilateral treaties, we can copy some of those rules so that you keep if you like the substance of the single
market, the way that the swiss do, while being outside the jurisdiction of the european court and the european commission. oration, richard, for many remain as in the uk is that there really isn't any... labour talks about the softening position, you are leaving the sickle market. if you want to negotiate your trade deals, your living missing trade union. that seems to be where the gamutjeremy corbyn is. if we leave the single market, there is great danger to the economy. after all the talk after the general election of that hard brexit option, that economic leak damaging option being reviewed since it wasn't endorsed by the electorate, there was all this talk about this wider more moderate approach, reaching out to people with different views, to date of its davis number less said we stick to the white paper, the white paper which surely is largely discredited after the events of the la st discredited after the events of the last few weeks. when it comes to the customs union,
how do you have this invisible border between north and south in ireland? no other free-trade area in the world, with the exception of vladimir putin's eurasian union and one other, is a customs union. you are not obliged to have a single common external tariff. leaving the customs union means britain can sign free—trade agreements with india, america, australia and china, all of the big economies overseas, which will account for 100% of the growth in this country. staying in the customs union while leaving the eu would be the worst of both worlds because the eu would have a say over oui’ because the eu would have a say over our trade deals. they had to come here today looking in charge of their brief and yet the politics at home tells us there is an awful lot
of discussion to be had in the house of discussion to be had in the house of commons. indeed and i do not think there is a majority in the house of commons for leaving the customs union. it is not as easy as dan portrays. not only are you outside your main export market, you also need to make new agreements with the rest of the world to replace the agreements we currently have with the european union. many of those were negotiated with the leverage of the world's largest market. we got concessions from other countries that way. if we come along and say, can we have the same please? there is no guarantee... the halfway house is unsatisfactory. do we have in norway deal where we pay a lot of money in and have no cloud? the swiss have a customs border and you barely recognise it. the swiss export nearly five times as much per head than we do. plainly this is not
a block to exploits. but those countries have free—trade agreements with china, the second—biggest economy the world. the eu does not have trade agreements with china or the us. i bet you a pound to the euro that we will have trade agreements with those. it is a pretty bad agreement. they cannot even export washers to china. through europe we get better deals because we have the push of the single union. is soft brexit dead? soft brexit is still alive. it has the disadvantage of leaving the european union because you have to acce pt european union because you have to accept the rules that you do not have a say any more. but economically it is a far less damaging option. we want the closest possible relationship with our european allies compatible with
being an independent country. that means giving our trade deals and our military and security links. we want to have prosperous neighbours because they make good customers. we will be, if you like, a country club member, supporting from the outside without being part of the political union and we will get what the british people always wanted a common market, and not a common government. there is a flavour of some of the negotiation in the coming weeks. they did get off to a good start. they are both very keen hill walkers. i am good start. they are both very keen hill walkers. iam not good start. they are both very keen hill walkers. i am not sure if there are coded messages. michel barnier gave david davis hobbled walking stick. and michel barnier was given a book on the himalayas. we could say that there is a big summit ahead and they are not even at base camp
one. or something about a long slog uphill. i think they would have done better off giving each other a crate of brandy or a very large box of aspirin. some red bull might have been better as the messy—mac i am sticking with brandy, christian. forget red bull. a minute's silence has been held across the uk for the victims of the london tower block fire. police now say 79 people have died — or are missing, presumed dead — and that some of their identities might never be known, as mark easton reports. there have been too many days like this. the firefighters of red watch, first on the scene last wednesday, linking arms with others across the united kingdom, the country pausing to reflect on the grenfell tower tragedy, a nation once again standing silently united in grief. parade dismissed. and then for red watch it was back
to the harrowing work in the tower as the official count of those presumed to have died in the fire rose to 75. police confirmed that... were among the victims. this was the reaction of firefighters when they raced to the scene last wednesday morning. it's impossible. itjumped up. like so many, disbelieving at the scale and ferocity of the blaze. i have investigated major crime for most of my service and i have seen some terrible things but i don't think anything prepared me for what i was going to see. the fire response team, including the red cross, london boroughs and whitehall departments, is now providing financial, physical and psychological support to more than 2000 people. over £200,000 in aid has been given out.
hotels and estate agents are helping find temporary beds and permanent homes but why did it take so long? it is almost as if you arrived three days too late. resilience arrangements were not invoked by the royal borough of kensington and chelsea. that is when we stepped in. some residents from evacuated homes in the shadow of grenfell tower say they have been told that the only option is to return to the flats.
one resident says a number of his neighbours are in homes without hot water and other amenities. without hot water and with what are coming for a tank which is under that charred husk of the tower, yes, that is where we're being asked to live at the moment. the authorities say no one is being forced to return. the blackened shell of grenfell tower against the clear blue sky seems to challenge all those who stand in the shadow to demand answers and find justice for scores of people we now know lost their lives. but what does justice mean? we focus on the cladding used at grenfell tower, the government has asked housing associations to check immediately whether tower blocks in their area use the same material. a criminal investigation is under way with scotland yard promising to go wherever the evidence take them. where offences have been committed, i will do everything within my gift to ensure those responsible are brought to justice. this evening, a silent protest in the shadow of grenfell tower from a community that says it has not been listened to forfar too long. it is so awful to think some of
those people might never be identified. forest fires in portugal have killed 62 people. 12 survivors have told of how they managed to hide from the flames in a water tank when their village was cut off. over a thousand firefighters are still trying to control the blaze, with people in the district of leiria being told to leave their homes. it's thought the fires were caused by a lightening strike on saturday. the coroner's report into the death of carrie fisher said she had traces of carrie fisher said she had traces of cocaine and heroin in her blood. she became ill on a flight from london to los angeles and died four days later. the coroner concluded it was due to sleep and other factors, but could not determine whether the drugs had had an impact. tomorrow georgia will hold a special election to fill an empty congressional seat. that's usually not the stuff of international headlines but this race is different and costly. the bbc‘s rajini vaidyathan has been breaking down the numbers for us. i'mjon ossof.
i've been involved in this district... the race to represent georgia's sixth congressional district becomes the most expensive ever. close to $40 million already spent. for decades the state has been republican. many democrats see it as a referendum on president trump. their candidate has raised the most cash so far. six times more than his republican rival. he has relied on smaller donations to fund his campaign. extremists will stop at nothing to push their radical agenda. now they're turning their attention to georgia... republican adverts like this have hit out at him, arguing that most of his cash is not coming from voters within the district. they are correct, the lion's share of his funding has come from outside the state. democrats point out that karen handel has also benefited from outside spending. millions of dollars from the republican party and some
of its fundraising committees have been spent on adverts attacking jon ossof. there has been a record turnout in early voting, a close race which will send a message to washington whatever the outcome. a lot of money for one congressional seat. there will be countries around the world who spend less than that on their country's elections. you're watching 100 days plus from bbc news. still to come for viewers on the bbc news channel and bbc world news — russia threatens to shoot down american jets in the latest escalation in syria — we'll get the view of a former us defence secretary. and is the us president under investigation or not? it's a question mr trump's lawyer struggles to answer — see what you make of it. that's still to come on 100 days plus and another hot day in the city,
very uncomfortable for some of us. others like it. it is going to stay overnight and into tomorrow and it is very uncomfortable over the next three days and three night as far as sleeping goes in many parts of england. there is fresh air in scotla nd england. there is fresh air in scotland and northern ireland but this cooler air may not reach the south until well into the weekend, so we will have to deal with this heat through most of the week, particularly in southern areas of the uk. i want to show you what the temperatures will be roundabout bedtime. let's call it 11 o'clock. we are talking about the mid 20s in london and the midlands, in the southern parts of wales. 22 in plymouth. throughout yorkshire 23 degrees, and then it freshens up significantly. this is 11 o'clock in scotla nd significantly. this is 11 o'clock in scotland and northern ireland. even
14 scotland and northern ireland. even 1a degrees is warm, but this is a lot cooler than what we have further south. one thing that will be happening, and this cool front, it is not particularly cold, this cooled front will separate the slightly less hot air in the north from the real heat in the south. the heat on tuesday will transferred to more southern and south—western areas. 30 in london and 17 in newcastle. on wednesday we see whether france approaching the uk. to the south it will stay hot, but in the north there is a chance of thunderstorms. we will see cloudy weather and outbreaks of rain and a distinct difference between the north and the south. again temperatures reaching 30 degrees in london. on wednesday it is the start of glastonbury in somerset, a very hot start, but then things will be
cooling off as we go through the course of the week. on tuesday it is another hot one in the south east and east anglia and the temperatures are lowering in the western areas, back to where we should be at this time of the year. the end of the week is looking fresher, but not fresher automatically in the far south east. to days plus. our top story: a man who drove a man into a group of balloons in north london at understood to be —— muslims. is donald trump in the position or not? his own lawyers into discrete, we are confused. —— seem to disagree, we are confused. as if the situation
in syria weren't tricky enough, it is now becoming even more promulgated and potentially dangerous. the russia said any syrian player the flying... the warning comes after the... syrian player the flying... the warning comes after the. .. in a separate incident, in iran, there are guards say the lawn several missiles into eton syria to target islamic state targets. i am joined by bill coen. thank you becoming in. how concerned are you? there have been a sequence of events, russians say they cancelled the hotline, we have got these iranians missiles and them shooting down a warplane. how serious is this? it can't get much more, located without it spreading into a conflict. russia has two breeds careful about what it is
saying and doing. —— russia has to be careful. they put the hotline backin be careful. they put the hotline back in operation. this is a dangerous situation which i don't think the russian... russians want to ta ke think the russian... russians want to take on. we don't want a war with russia. talking is going to be more important. extraordinary to think of the possibility that america do not want to have a war with america. -- rusher. i imagine the potentialfor a mistake being made is a great one. yes, this calculation. honest mistakes, with so many different troops, so many planes flying, so many groups and forces all in the same type of region, the chance for mr chelation, mistake or —— miscalculation. it is dangerous. i
was reading this morning about the troop numbers for afghanistan and it is loosely connected this because they were saying in the american papers that the pentagon is being given the lead on deciding how to tackle so—called islamic state and al-anda, i wonder if thatjust adds to the convocations. without the commander in chief over the top. you may recall over the course of the campaign, president ron said he knew more than the generals knew. it is clear that he doesn't know more and thatis clear that he doesn't know more and that is one of the reasons why he has deferred to secretaryjim mavers. —— president trump. certainly due to waterboarding and torturing. he has been deferring to the military and in this particular case, i would the military and in this particular case, iwould hope the military and in this particular case, i would hope that he would spend more time reading the presidential daily brief that he does engaging in twitter. but to an
extent, he doesn't and he will have to rely on secretary matters to understand what the nature of this and the chance of success will be depending on what the strategies. what would you like to hear from the administration on syria from the president is himself? i would like to have the present articulate what the strategy is. before you start talking about numbers of troops going up, numbers to do what? what are we seeking to do? both in iraq and syria. i think it is still unclear whether there is insurgency, whether terrorists, it is not clear exactly what is needed
and how many troops are needed. a short time ago, i spoke to michael who is a adviser to angler michael. the price of divorce for britain is going to be 100 billion euros. you know britain will never pay that, it is not politically possible for the government to agree that, what is the real cost? what will it take to tell other european countries it is going to be more expensive for you to leave them to stay in? there are contracts. of course, the uk has to follow the contracts and if the contracts are follow the contracts and if the contracts a re really follow the contracts and if the contracts are really that high then the uk might have to pay. brexit is a brexit, we are not very happy that the uk wants to do the brexit, but
if they really want to, they have to but the proposals. today, we started the proposals in brussels. mr davies and mrmichel the proposals in brussels. mr davies and mr michel barnier. one thing for us and mr michel barnier. one thing for us is very clear. brexit means brexit. in means in and out means out and if somebody is stepping out, he has to come up with a decent proposal and we are waiting. you seem to be saying that 100 billion euros might be the figure that britain has to pay to leave. it is. that is not out of the world. it could be true that this is the figure. one thing is very clear, countries not being an eu member are not free not to pay nothing to the eu. is this money that you are asking from brittany punishment to britain for leaving, or is it a deterrent to other european union countries that might be thinking of leaving? i don't think so. we don't
wa nt to leaving? i don't think so. we don't want to punish anybody. first of all, we have got to say that we are not happy that they are leaving, but asa not happy that they are leaving, but as a matter of fact, there are a lot of british civil servants in brussels which are going to have pensions and things like that, that has to be paid by britain, of course. this is normal. we have to calculate everything. definitely, we will do it in a fair way. the talks started today. you are a close ally of angler michael. it'd be chancellor's view that the brits have come to these talks in brussels weakened by the election results in britain? it is not my turn to discuss the election result. that is the british people who voted. not so much in favour of madame may again. right, but is it the feeling of the european union and the european union partners that britain is now ina weaker union partners that britain is now in a weaker negotiating position?
you feel emboldened ? in a weaker negotiating position? you feel emboldened? it is difficult to say that. we are really starting today. the article 50 already is triggered in march, so we should have done work already which we could not close mrs may decided to have election first. now it is a new situation. a new party, notjust mrs may's party, also the dup party and we had to see how they are coming along. it is all pretty clear at the moment. accurate much forjoining us. the message seems to be that we love britain and the brits, but if they are leaving, they have to pay. it is day one. you are very good at this kind of thing, speculate forward for me. go forward. how long is this go to take and how difficult will it be? how will they get it over the finish line? you send me an interesting part of research which i haven't seen. those who are
pro—remain and favour of europe, think germany is a favour of good and will try and help where it can. there are those of the brexit side who think that germany has too much influence. my view is that actually be people who will really make the difference in these negotiations are actually the two guys who have been in the building today, michel barnier and david davis because when you look back at previous negotiations, look back at the good friday agreement. lots of history, lots of negativity, people coming from opposite sides of the spectrum. yet, it was the relationship between doctor ian paisley and martin mcguinness, for instance, that really made the difference at the end of the day. they developed this close personal relationship through the negotiation and when they came to the roadblocks, it was that personal relationship, two of them locked in a room, likely got them over the line. sometimes we are cynical, but actually it might not work like that. when we
are at 500 days down the line. i think that relationship will prove crucial when it comes to the end of the play. they did make a good point of saying it had gone well. is the president under investigation for obstruction ofjustice of not? that is the question which seems to be vexing even the trump administration at the moment. on friday the president sent this tweet saying: i am being investigated for firing the fbi director by the man who told me to fire the fbi director! witch hunt. seems pretty clear... but not so fast. a member of mr trump's legal team, jay sekulow, was sent out this weekend to clarify that the president was just referring to media reports and that he was not under investigation. but then this happened. now he is being investigated by the department ofjustice because the special counsel under the special council regulation reports to the department ofjustice, not an independent counsel, so he is being investigated. you have now said he is being investigated after saying he was not. no.
you just said that he is being investigated. no, chris, let me be crystal clear so you completely understand. we have not received, nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the united states. you just said two times that he is being investigated. no, you are putting words in my mouth when i have been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been under investigation. i don't think i can be any clearer than that. i don't think i can be any clearer than that. i'm confused and bamboozled. first of all he said he was under investigation, for something that the doj told them to do, but likely he is not investigation. which is a?|j do, but likely he is not investigation. which is a? i don't know about you, whenever a lawyer or a politician says i'm going to be crystal clear, it is usually a pretty good indication that they are trying to muddy the waters quite a lot. the real story of this is that
the white house doesn't know if he is investigating, being under investigation, because he has not been formally notified. and when he was pushed on this committee had to get in the position of admitting that he didn't actually know whether the president... we are getting weight loss in the weeds of legality. we don't know if the president was under investigating, we just know treated. the top and bottom of this is that when president trump is talking about jobsjobsjobs. he is talking about jobsjobsjobs. he is talking about jobs for the lawyers. lawyers are now getting lawyers. and his lawyers getting a lawyer. amyloid have you got? i think i better got one of only two feel important in this town. who am i got a lawyer in washington, dc at the moment. it needs to be done. the only other thing i would say his do you rememberjames coney‘s testimony and how he assumes that robert was going to investigate the instruction of justice, that would seem to suggest
that that issue was going to come up under that investigation. that it is from brussels, we will be like tomorrow, i will be back in london. from me and catty, we will be back thank you very much for watching. the bbc understands that the man arrested for the finsbury park terror attack is darren osborne aged 47 from the cardiff area. he's being held on terrorism charges including murder and attempted murder. police have removed the hired van which was driven into worshippers near the mosque leaving one person dead and ten others injured. the first day of brexit
talks between the uk and the eu have finished — with both sides saying negotiations have got off to a positive start. an update on the market numbers for you — here's how london's and frankfurt ended the day. and in the the united states this is how the dow and the nasdaq are getting on. a man has been arrested on suspicion of terror offences, including murder and attempted murder, after a van was driven into worshippers near a mosque in north london. one person has died and eight people were taken to hospital. they are all muslims. the bbc understands the suspect is darren osborne, who's a7, and lives in the cardiff area. well a little earlier there was a news conference held by a local imam in finsbury park, where the attack took place. while the people who are attending
to the injured were calling the emergency services, a police van drove past by coincidence. which flags down and told the situation, he is restrained and mowed down a number of people with his van. there isa number of people with his van. there is a mob attempting to hurt him if they don't take him, god forbid, he might be seriously hurt. we pushed people away from him until he was safely ta ke n people away from him until he was safely ta ken by people away from him until he was safely taken by police by custody and put into the back of the van. that is all that we did. it wasn't me alone, there were a group of brothers, some others i don't know their names. they were calm, collected, managed to calm people down and to extinguish any flames of
