Jeremy Corbyn will attend a prayer service at the Finsbury Park mosque after a man ploughed a van into Muslims leaving late night prayers, killing one person and injuring eight.
Axar.az reports citing Independent.
The Labour leader said he was "shocked by this horrific and cruel attack" which is being treated as a terrorist incident by the Metropolitan Police.
In a statement, Mr Corbyn said he offered his condolences to the victims and their families.
“As the local MP, I have met with Muslim community leaders at the Muslim Welfare House alongside Islington Council Leader Richard Watts, the council’s Chief Executive Lesley Seary and the Metropolitan Police.
“Richard and I will attend prayers at Finsbury Park mosque later today.”
He also called on “everyone to stand together against those who seek to divide us.”
