|Mosque Attack in London|
Monday, June 19, 2017
A vehicular attack outside a mosque in Finsbury Park, London, killed one person and injured several others shortly after midnight local time today. The attack happened on Seven Sisters Road, a 35-minute drive northeast from our London office.
IFSA-Butler has several spring semester students who are still in London, as well as some summer program students who arrived over the weekend. We have communicated with these students, and none was affected by this incident.
IFSA-Butler resident staff address issues of safety and security during the mandatory program orientation and throughout the program term. We encourage students to remain vigilant and aware of their surroundings at all times. Students are also given a 24/7 emergency number that they can call to reach a London resident staff member in the event of an emergency.
