Finsbury Park attack: Cardiff resident Darren Osborne arrested

<p>As the investigation continues into the Finsbury Park attack more details have emerged about the suspect, Darren Osborne. </p> <p>The 47-year-old father of four is being held on suspicion of commission, preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder after a rental van was driven into worshippers near a mosque in north London.</p> <p>Police have searched his house in the Cardiff suburbs as part of their investigation. No further suspects are being sought.</p> <p>The British government says Osborne was previously unknown to security services.</p> <p>Eleven people were injured and one man, who had collapsed shortly before the van arrived, died. It is not clear if his death was related to the attack. </p> <p>Until 2004 the Finsbury Park mosque was known as a breeding ground for radicalisation, led by imam Abu Hamza.</p> <p>Following his arrest, Mohammed Kozbar brought the mosque into a new era. It has since won several community awards, including one for tackling extremism.</p>
