London [UK], Feb 2 (ANI): The man, who killed one person and injured several others last year in a terror attack near London's Finsbury Park Mosque, has been sentenced to life imprisonment by a UK court on Friday.

Darren Osborne, the attacker, was sentenced by the court for a minimum of 43 years on charges of attempted murder, according to CNN.

Justice Cheema-Grubb said, "Osborne had been rapidly radicalized, and his mindset became one of malevolent hatred," the UK Press Association reported.

"This was a terrorist attack. You intended to kill," Cheema-Grubb added.

On June 19 last year, Osborne drove his van intendedly into the worshippers leaving Finsbury Park Mosque after evening prayers in north London. (ANI)
