Missing oil rig workers 'forgotten'

Environmental and economic concerns overshadow loss of 11 oil rig workers.

    Public concern about the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has been focused on the potential environmental and economic damage across the US east coast.

    The 11 workers reported missing since the explosion at BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling platform on April 20 have been all but forgotten in the aftermath.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Reynolds visits the family of one of the missing 11, Aaron Dale Burkeen, in Mississippi.
