News Summary: Trial begins for 2010 Gulf oil spill
By The Associated Press
JUDGMENT DAY: Eleven workers died when the rig exploded April 20, 2010, and millions of gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.
DAMAGE DONE: BP capped the well after more than 85 days. It spewed an estimated 172 million gallons of crude into the Gulf, fouling marshes and beaches, killing wildlife and closing vast areas to fishing.
