Oil leak stops


In this image taken from video provided by BP PLC at 17:21 CDT, oil has stopped flowing from the center valve as testing of the new 75-ton cap atop the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico begins Wednesday, July 14, 2010. The federal government gave BP the green light Wednesday to try choking off the Gulf of Mexico oil gusher with the untested metal cap after a daylong delay to satisfy worries about whether the project might make the leak worse.
