    Members of the UK's Muslim community have condemned a car-and-knife attack which killed at least five people, including the suspect.

    Many also feared collective punishment as some equate Islam with "terrorism".

    "We're in a very difficult position," said Mohammed Kozbar, chairman of Finsbury Park mosque. "We hope that there's no reaction from far-right extremists who may use this incident to spread fear and hate and racism among our society."

    Al Jazeera's Neave Barker reports from London.
