High hopes for BP oil well cap

BP engineers begin delicate task of testing new cap on ruptured Gulf of Mexico oil well.

    Oil giant BP has begun testing a new cap that could finally choke off the massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico that has been gushing crude into the ocean for three months.

    The operation had earlier been postponed after the US government expressed concern the tests were potentially dangerous.
