OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- India's minister of external affairs is reassuring Wisconsin Sikhs that his entire country feels their pain after the mass shooting at a suburban Milwaukee temple two months ago.

S.M. Krishna; India's ambassador to the United States, Nirupama Rao; and Counsel General of India in Chicago Dutta Toma visited the temple in Oak Creek on Thursday. Krishna addressed about 150 Sikhs in the temple's hall, telling them they have the sympathy of a billion people.

Wade Michael Page opened fire at the temple on Aug. 5 shortly before Sunday services. He killed six worshippers and wounded four others, including an Oak Creek police officer, before killing himself in a shootout with another officer.

Page's motivations remain unclear. FBI spokesman Leonard Peace says an investigation remains active.
