Following the terrorist attack near a mosque in north London, fake reports started circulating on Twitter that British authorities identified the attacker as an American man named Sam Hyde:

However, no such claim has been made by Met Police or other law enforcement agencies. 

Sam Hyde is a familiar face for whoever has been watching hoaxes and fake news closely in the past few years.
