Police name Finsbury Park mosque attack victim, revealing that he died of 'multiple injuries'
LONDON — Police have formally named Makram Ali as the victim of the Finsbury Park mosque attack on Monday.
The 51-year-old died of "multiple injuries" injuries, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement, citing a special post-mortem examination.
It suggests that Ali died as a result of being hit by the van, rather than the collapse he suffered in the moments before the atrocity.
Ali was among a group of Muslims allegedly targeted by Darren Osborne in the early hours of Monday morning.
Osborne drove a hire van into the individuals, who had just emerged from worshiping in the Finsbury Park mosque. He is said to have shouted that he wanted to "kill all Muslims." Osborne, 47, remains in custody.
Nine people were taken to hospital on as a result of the attack on Monday morning. Four patients remain in hospital, with two receiving critical care.
Ali came to the UK from Bangladesh when he was 10 years old. He was married with four daughters, two sons, and two grandchildren.
