A car drove into a crowd of Muslims leaving a mosque in London, England, while the vehicle’s occupants allegedly made “Islamophobic” comments. The incident left several people injured.

According to the Metropolitan Police, three men and a woman, all in their twenties, were sitting in the vehicle in the mosque’s private car park “behaving anti-socially, drinking and allegedly using drugs” before security told them to leave.

After driving near to the Islamic center, the car’s occupants “were involved in a confrontation with a large group of people” visiting the mosque in Cricklewood, north London. Visitors were attending a lecture series on the Prophet Muhammad’s grandson.

“Words were exchanged and comments of an Islamophobic nature were allegedly made by the group in the car,” the police release said.
