OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) — Sikh (seek) worshippers in Wisconsin are holding a ceremony involving a flag pole before their first Sunday prayer service since a white supremacist shot and killed six people at their temple.
About 100 people are gathered in the parking lot of the temple in Oak Creek, where several dozen men and boys have taken down a flag pole covered with orange cloth. They are washing it in water and milk before they will re-wrap it in a fresh cloth.
Then the group will go inside the temple for more prayers and hymns.
Members began returning to the temple Thursday, after the FBI completed its onsite investigation. They replaced carpets and repaired walls damaged by gunfire but left a dime-sized bullet hole un-repaired in memory of those killed.
