Apple, Samsung and Sony face child labour claims

By Jane Wakefield, BBC, 19 January 2016.
Human rights organisation Amnesty has accused Apple, Samsung and Sony, among others, of failing to […] ensure minerals used in their products are not mined by children.
Human rights organisation Amnesty [...] found children as young as seven working in dangerous conditions.
Cobalt is a a vital component of lithium-ion batteries. The firms said that they had a zero tolerance policy towards child labour. [Amnesty] also collected the testimonies of children who allegedly work in the mines.
Paul, a 14-year-old orphan, started mining when he was 12 and told researchers: “I would spend 24 hours down in the tunnels. I arrived in the morning and would leave the following morning... I had to relieve myself down in the tunnels... My foster mother planned to send me to school, but my foster father was against it, he exploited me by making me work in the mine.”
UNICEF estimates that there are approximately 40,000 children working in mines across southern Democratic Republic of Congo.
