BP Holds First Shareholder's Meeting Since Gulf Disaster

JIM WATSON/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) -- In London, they're holding the first BP general shareholders' meeting since the disastrous spill in the Gulf of Mexico.    

The meeting has focused on the anger felt by many still affected on the Gulf Coast. Mindful of mood, BP Chairman Carl Henric Svanberg addressed the issue head-on. "Everyone at BP is shocked and saddened that this accident happened."

"We will do all that we can to prevent such an accident from happening again, he promised.

But critics aren't so sure that lessons will be learned.
