Feds: Cap on ruptured BP's oil well leaking

WASHINGTON (AP) Oil is leaking from the cap on BP's ruptured oil well, but federal officials intend to leave it in place for now.

Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen says Monday afternoon that the leaks are so far not a major concern.

He also says seepage about two miles away is likely not related to the ruptured well.

Allen says if there was a quick rise in pressure, they would open the well immediately to keep from creating leaks deep underground.
