One dead - but apparently not as a result of the attack, if it was an attack. He was already down and receiving treatment before the van crashed into them.
Driver was the only person involved. It appears that certain people are trying to liken it to the incident a few days ago and so included the extra two men.
No certainty that the driver was shouting anti-Islam statements.
Driver did not get out and attack with a knife. Driver got out of van unarmed and was seized by the bystanders.
No evidence that this was a terrorist attack as of yet. It may have been a simple accident.
There again, it may have been a deliberate attack and if so is to be regarded as a terrorist attack.
Interesting to note that Islamic groups are using this incident to justify earlier terrorist attacks. See, Islamaphobia. We're just fighting back.
Interesting to see that Trump is waiting for the situation to become clear before commenting. Not like Obama who was quite willing to jump in with both feet and inflame a situation by reacting without full knowledge.
As a matter of curiosity, do you really believe that if Trump doesn't react on Twitter then he hasn't reacted at all? Have you any idea if he spoke to the Media about the incident and the Media just chose not to report it, probably because it might show Trump in a favorable light, which can't be permitted.
