Wisconsin Sikh temple gunman had 'white supremacy links'

  • U.S. authorities are looking into reports that a gunman who killed six people at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin was linked to a white supremacist group.

    Wade Michael Page, 40, who was shot dead by police during Sunday's attack, reportedly performed in a far-right music group.

    The FBI is treating the attack as a domestic terrorism case.

    American Sikhs have been targeted since the 9/11 attacks, often mistaken for Muslims due to wearing turbans and beards.

    Page opened fire at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek as dozens arrived for a morning service.

    Five men and a woman aged between 39 and 84 were killed. Four people were found dead inside the building, and two outside.

    Three others, including a policeman, are still in critical condition.
