Sikhs Remember Slain Worshippers

Members of the Sikh community attend a memorial service at the federal courthouse in downtown Milwaukee.

At least 100 people gathered at the federal courthouse in downtown Milwaukee Friday, to honor the six Oak Creek Sikh temple members, who were slain nearly a year ago.

Pictures of those who died were on display in the rotunda, right under the American flag.

They were killed when a white supremacist entered the temple and opened fire. He took his own life, after he was surrounded -- and injured -- by police.

Amardeep Kaleka, the son of slain temple president Satwant Singh Kaleka, says it was unfortunate that it took a tragedy for Sikhs to be recognized in America.
