CHICAGO — US President Barack Obama says the continued flow of oil into the Gulf of Mexico is "as enraging as it is heartbreaking."

Obama commented Saturday after BP officials said the latest attempt to cut the flow of oil had failed. Obama says that while officials had hoped the "top kill" procedure would succeed, they were mindful that there was a significant chance it would not.
