Samsung, Sony, Apple and other major tech companies have been accused of profiting from child labor in Africa by using minerals mined by children in their products. The accusation comes in a report submitted by Amnesty International on cobalt mining done in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which found that young children had been working in dangerous conditions. Lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, which are used by these smartphone manufacturers, have a key component in cobalt. We look at the accusation on the Lip News with Margaret Howell and Jo Ankier.
