The day in photos, July 11, 2010

In this image taken from video provided by BP PLC, the arms of a remotely operated vehicle works Saturday on the well head at the Deepwater Horizon oil spill site in the Gulf of Mexico. Robotic submarines removed the cap from the gushing well on Saturday, beginning a period of at least two days when oil will flow freely into the sea. It’s the first step in placing a tighter dome that is supposed to funnel more oil to collection ships.
