BP cap plugs Gulf oil leak

Cautious welcome as flow of oil from ruptured well is temporarily halted.

    Nearly three months since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, the flow of oil from the ruptured undersea oil well has been halted – at least temporarily.

    Engineers from oil giant BP are waiting to see if the new cap placed over the well can hold the oil without blowing a new leak.
