Moment of silence to mark attack near London mosque

June 19, 2018 - 4:27 am

LONDON (AP) — Survivors of an attack near a London mosque have been invited to gather for a moment of silence to remember the victim and others hurt when a man drove his van into a crowd leaving evening prayers during Ramadan.

The minute's silence will be held in memory of father-of-six Makram Ali, and for a dozen other people injured a year ago Tuesday.

The attacker, Darren Osborne, 48, was sentenced earlier this year to life in prison with no chance of parole for 43 years for murder and attempted murder for the attack targeting Muslims in London's Finsbury Park neighborhood.

In sentencing earlier this year, Judge Bobbie Cheema-Grubb said Osborne's mind was "poisoned" by far-right ideas before the June 2017 attack targeting Muslims and that he showed no signs of remorse.
