Last night counter terror and armed police sealed off London Central Mosque also known as Regents Park Mosque after two suspects murdered a man outside the busy Mosque.
Following 6 attacks on Mosques in Birmingham and the tragic terror attack at two Mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, authorities responded assuming the murder was terror related.
More than 12 hours after the murder no suspects have still been identified or arrested. However the Metropolitan Police have issued a statement that they no longer believe the murder to be terror related.
A manhunt is still ongoing and police are limited as to what information they can share so as to not tip off the suspects as to lines of enquiry.
Additional police presence has been sent to the Mosque for Friday prayers (Jumma’) today.
Anyone with information is urged to call the police on 101. The murder occurred approximately 18:30 GMT yesterday evening with the Mosque remaining sealed off well into the night.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Al-Sahawat Times than ever but advertising revenues across the global media industry are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a total paywall. We want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Al-Sahawat Times’ independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe truly ethical media and an unbias perspective really matters.
“I appreciate there not being a paywall: it is more democratic for the media to be available for all and not a commodity to be purchased by a few. I’m happy to make a contribution so others with less means still have access to information.”
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, the future of ethical media and the futures of our staff and their families would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support Al-Sahawat Times and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
