NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Attorney General Eric Holder says federal authorities have opened criminal and civil investigations into the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill.
Holder would not specify Tuesday which companies or individuals might be the targets of the probe. He says federal clean air and pollution laws give him the power to open the investigations.
Holder met with attorneys general from Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama on Tuesday.
