WASHINGTON — The latest BP maneuver to stop the gush of oil from a busted well in the Gulf of Mexico had to be put on pause on Wednesday because a diamond saw got stuck in the pipe it was trying to cut through on the ocean floor.

Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said BP on Wednesday morning was trying to maneuver the pipe to free the saw, but would send down a second blade if necessary.
