Nigerian Children Dying of Lead Poisoning From Gold Mining in Latest Outbreak

Illegal grinding of ore releases lead dust that contaminates air, water and food


LAGOS, Nigeria—More than two dozen children have died of lead poisoning from illegal gold mining in a remote west-central village, Nigerian health officials said, while doctors are still treating thousands from an earlier outbreak.

In 2010, Nigerian men walked among the graves of children killed by lead poisoning caused by illegal gold mining. Now more children are dying in another outbreak in the country's Niger state.
