Family of allaged London mosque attacker 'devastated'
The family of the man accused of mowing down Muslims outside a London mosque say they're "devastated" and called the attack "sheer madness".

He had collapsed with a leg problem and was being attended to by fellow worshippers leaving late-night Ramadan prayers at the mosque when the hired van careered into them.

Mr Ali came to Britain from Bangladesh when he was 10. He was married with four daughters and two sons, and had two grandchildren. 

His family has said they were "devastated" by his death. "Our father was a quiet, gentle man," they said in a statement.

The attack was the fourth in Britain in three months, killing a total of 36 people and injuring around 200.

The three previous attacks were all Islamist-linked.
