Obama says oil spill not over until BP well killed

President Barack Obama said on Friday despite the apparent success of BP's efforts to cap its ruptured Gulf of Mexico well, the problem would not be resolved until relief wells had been completed.

BP finally choked off the leak from its deepsea well on Thursday, the first time it has managed to cap the flow since a blowout on April 20 caused the worst oil spill in U.S. history and an environmental disaster for the U.S. Gulf coast region.
