Riley returns to Alabama Gulf Coast due to spill

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Gov. Bob Riley is headed back to the Alabama Gulf Coast to meet with local officials who are working to protect the area from a massive oil slick that's in the Gulf.

Riley's visit Saturday will be the ninth day out of the last 11 that the governor has been in either Mobile or Baldwin counties because of the spill caused by an oil rig explosion.

Riley is expected to brief reporters during his visit to the coast.
