Sikhs allowed to return to temple after shooting

MILWAUKEE: Sikhs are returning to a U.S. temple for the first time since the shootings that killed six worshippers and left three people critically wounded.

Inderjeet Singh Dhillon is a community leader at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin. He says the FBI returned the temple keys to members Thursday morning.

Temple leaders say they're planning a ceremony Friday to honor the six killed in Sunday's attack. The ceremony involves a series of priests reading their holy book aloud from cover to cover, which takes 48 hours.

The attack was carried by Wade Michael Page, a white supremacist who shot and killed himself during a shootout with police.
