US temple gunman a 'neo-Nazi'

THE gunman who killed six people inside a Sikh temple in the US before dying in a police shootout was a 40-year-old army veteran described as a "frustrated neo-Nazi".

Police called the attack on Sunday an act of domestic terrorism.

The FBI said there was no reason to think anyone else was involved in the attack, and they were not aware of any past threat made against the temple.

The gunman was Wade Michael Page, said First Assistant US Attorney Greg Haanstad in Milwaukee.

Page was discharged from the army in 1998 and declared ineligible to re-enlist, according to a US defence official.
