London's Finsbury Park Mosque Attacker Will Spend Life in Prison

London's Finsbury Park Mosque Attacker Will Spend Life in Prison

The daughter of the man murdered in the Finsbury Park terrorist attack described his killer as a "narrow-minded, heartless being" yesterday as he was jailed for a minimum of 43 years.

Sentencing him at Woolwich crown court, Justice Bobbie Cheema-Grubb said: "Over the space of a month or so your mindset became one of malevolent hatred".

A police statement confirmed a 48-year-old suspect has been arrested.

A jury convicted Osborne of murder and attempted murder on Thursday for the June 2017 attack in London's Finsbury Park neighborhood.

Osborne will be sentenced on Friday at Woolwich Crown Court and faces a mandatory sentence of life imprisonment.

HERO imam Mohammed Mahmoud stopped the furious crowd from tearing killer Osborne apart after the horrifying van attack.

Osborne, who was convicted of Mr Ali's murder and the attempted murder of several others, had been radicalised over the internet by far-right material.

A group of worshippers had gathered around 51-year-old grandfather Makram Ali, who had collapsed, when Osborne drove his vehicle into the group, killing Ali.

Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy director Andrew McCabe stepping down
As expected he will take accumulated leave and remain on the payroll until March when he is eligible to retire with full benefits. Various sources described McCabe's departure as a mutual decision, while others said it was the result of pressure to step down.

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 past year, along with two subsequent terror attacks in the UK.

Makram Ali, a Bangladesh-born local man, died of multiple injuries after his legs were crushed under the van.

The Home Secretary said the Government would soon be publishing a new counter-terrorism strategy setting out its approach to tackling anyone who seeks to attack Britain, its values and way o life.

"Our father, like the victims of most terrorism, was entirely innocent, which makes his death in this violent way even more hurtful".

Members of Mr. Ali's family watched from the public gallery as the sentence was handed down.

"I went to his funeral and he was a husband who was loved and a father who was loved - they've lost him because of the actions of this terrorist".

Osborne, from Cardiff, rented the van and drove to the mosque hoping to kill "as many Muslims as possible", the jury heard.

During the nine-day trial Osborne told the court he had wanted to kill senior Labour figures including leader Jeremy Corbyn.
