Indian dignitaries to meet Wis. Sikh survivors

OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- A trio of Indian dignitaries plans to meet with survivors of a mass shooting at a Sikh temple outside Milwaukee.

Indian Foreign Minister S.M. Krishna, Indian Ambassador to the United States Nirupama Rao and Consul General of India in Chicago Dutta Tomar will visit the temple in suburban Oak Creek on Thursday. They'll meet with worshippers who survived Wade Michael Page's Aug. 5 rampage.

Page, a 40-year-old Army veteran and white supremacist, opened fire at the temple shortly before Sunday services began. He killed six worshippers and wounded three others. He also wounded Oak Creek Police Lt. Brian Murphy before killing himself during a shoot-out with another officer.

Page's motivations remain unclear.
