WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is trying to help some of the 40,000 Americans stranded in Britain due to air travel disrupted by volcanic ash from Iceland, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said on Monday.

The White House is working with the State Department to help those Americans, he said.
