they had to accomplish one simple but crucial task. can you guess what that was? we'll tell you, coming up, on this monday, june 19th. we say good morning to you on this monday. we're going to get straight to the breaking news out of london. a van driven on to a sidewalk in north london, running down pedestrians near a mosque. >> one person was killed. several other people who were leaving that mosque after prayers were injured. police have abrearrested a 48-year-old man. he's being treated at the hospital. and two other people may be connected with that incident but got away. >> we look at the scene. like many that we've seen in london lately, you see the technicians are there. several hours after that incident. you will remember the deadly terror attack just two weeks ago. attackers driving a van on to the pedestrian bridge on london bridge and attacking with knives. witnesses who saw this morning's
incident describe a scene of chaos. >> he basically drove on the pavement, coming straight towards all of the muslims. as he's coming to them, he hit all of them. and i think one of them died. >> one of them died straight away. >> and the rest are in bad condition. >> can you give me -- how many people do you see lying injured on the floor? >> about seven, eight. >> they were seriously injured? >> seriously injured. >> and prime minister theresa may says this is a terrorist attack. but a muslim group says it is terrorism, calling it the most violent form of islamaphobia that brittons have faced recently. >> and the mayor of london called it a horrific terrorist attack. one that is being investigated at this hour. >> a potential terror attack. they're investigating it. there has been backlash from people in the community saying this is terrorism. >> exactly. >> we're going to look a little
further into that, coming up. also want to move to another breaking story. escalating tensions in syria. for the first time a u.s. fighter jet has shot down a syrian warplane. the syrian jet was targeted after it attacked u.s.-backed forces. the coalition is focused on fighting the islamic state. but it will not hesitate to defend its forces. >> the syrian military says its pilot was killed. steve ganyard has more on the possible impact. >> for the first time in almost 20 years, a u.s. aircraft has shot down another manned aircraft. in the skies over syria, the u.s. watched as the syrian jet bombed the u.s.-backed positions. they got on the hotline to the russians and said, stop it. the syrian jet continued to attack the positions. and after, the navy pilot was cleared to fire an air-to-air missile and knock down this
aircraft. we saw president trump made a clear message with the tomahawk strike. the u.s. has been pushed by the russians and the syrians for a long time in the air space over syria. hopefully this will calm things down. but it's up to mr. putin. the ball is in his court. he could escalate it to a point where it becomes a direct confrontation between u.s. and russian forces. >> when you think about that incident think about this one that took place in syria. this time from iran. retaliating for the deadly isis attacks on the parliament and a shine earlier this month. the iranian revolutionary guard fired several ground-to-ground missiles. many terrorists were killed and the weapons destroyed. iran is a strong supporter of syria's president, and rarely launches direct attacks inside syria. so, you had two different countries going on the offense in syria over the weekend. and at least two people have been killed in a terror attack

all of the stakeholders in this. especially the japanese. but we will -- we'll get those answers. >> the impact knocked sailors out of their bunks and water flooded the sleeping quarters. you can see, extensive damage to the ship. some sailors kept diving to save their shipmates, while others saved the ship from sinking. a major disaster in portugal where wildfires have killed 60 people. the flames so intense, the government is making an uh gerg appeal for help. richard cantu, has the latest. >> reporter: all through the night, the deadly forest fires raging out of control. the wall of flames outpacing more than 1,000 firefighters, struggling desperately to contain them. the flames whipped by fierce wind. when i saw the wind it looked like a storm and fireworks, said this woman. and i told my husband, this is the end of the world. and it was for dozens who

we're still waiting for official confirmation from police about whether they're chasing these two other alleged tackers. >> molly, on another note, any idea how two men get away in such a large crowd? >> reporter: all i can say is the chaos was a fast-moving event. it was so confusing. what happened is we learned from people is there was a big group of people outside of the mosque. an older man had gone down on the ground with some sort of heart problem. people thought he might have had a heart attack. by the time the van turned the corner and accelerated into the crowd of people, there was a crowd around this man on the ground. there were enough people around, it's unclear what point those people -- if they were two people, jumped out and which direction they ran. but there's quite a bit of nervousness, too, in this community. that maybe two people that wanted to hurt this community are still out there. >> a community there in north london on-edge this morning. molly hunter is joining us. molly, thank you. we're going to keep our
