Apple, Google, Tesla profit from child labor in Africa cobalt mines: Lawsuit

Several of the US largest technology firms have been accused of profiting from child labor in Africa cobalt mines, a new lawsuit says.

Apple, Dell, Microsoft, Tesla and Alphabet, the parent company of Google, must pay damages over knowingly profiting from African children laboring under brutal conditions, alleges the suit filed by the nongovernmental organization International Rights Advocates this week.

Cobalt is an essential element used in the rechargeable lithium batteries that fuel many electronic devices.
