AMMAN, June 19 (Xinhua) -- Jordan on Monday condemned a terrorist attack that targeted worshippers as they were leaving a mosque in London.

Jordan's Minister of State for Media Affairs Mohammad Momani said the terrorist crime seeks to spread hatred among the followers of various religions in the world, the state-run Petra news agency reported.

He stressed on Jordan's rejection of all forms of terrorism that seeks to spread chaos.

He called for increased international efforts to uproot terrorism and radicalism. The minister also voiced solidarity with the UK.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that she would chair an emergency meeting later in the day after police called the incident in north London "a potential terrorist attack."

A van rammed into a crowd of worshippers early Monday morning near a mosque in north London, killing one and injuring 10 others.
