Dodd-Frank Metals Rule Pits SEC Against African Warlords

- June 23 (Bloomberg) -- The Dodd-Frank Act, passed a year ago, requires the Securities and Exchange Commission to order an estimated 5,994 public companies to report whether they obtain any of four metals from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Humanitarian groups accuse warlords in Congo of enslaving, raping and murdering residents in the aftermath of the country's civil war. That misery, they say, is funded by "conflict minerals" torn from Congo's rich mines. Bloomberg's Lizzie O'Leary reports. (Source: Bloomberg) ()
