US oil spill's widening challenge

Clean-up of oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is being hampered by poor weather.

    The chief executive of BP, the UK-based energy company, will face a grilling over the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico when he meets US government officials in Washington DC on Wednesday.

    Tony Hayward has been on a charm offensive, saying his company will pay for the massive clean-up operation that is under way.

    But bad weather is preventing the clean up effort from continuing at pace.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds took a flight over the oil slick, which is still being by fed by the leaking Deepwater Horizon well-head.
