Romney Confuses 'Sikh' With 'Sheik'
US presidential candidate Mitt Romney has made another gaffe - wrongly referring to the scene of a recent deadly gun attack at a Sikh place of worship as a 'sheik' temple.
The Republican politician, who is racing against President Barack Obama to become the next American president, made the mistake at fundraising event in Iowa on Tuesday evening.
Paying tribute to those killed in the shooting in Wisconsin on Sunday , Mr Romney said: "We had a moment of silence in honour of the people who lost their lives at that sheikh temple. I noted that it was a tragedy for many, many reasons."
Further confusing the Arabic term with the Sikh religion, he went on: "Among them are the fact that people, the sheik people, are among the most peaceable and loving individuals you can imagine, as is their faith." http://uk.news.yahoo.com/romney-confuses-sikh-sheik-115557882.html
