FILE- In this Aug. 17, 2012 file photo, a Congolese miner digs for cassiterite, the major ore of tin, at Nyabibwe mine, in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Increased violence and corruption in central Africa could be the result of the recent decision by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission not to enforce a rule requiring American companies to report their use of conflict minerals, warn Congolese civic groups, rights groups and U.S. senators. In April 2017 the SEC said it will no longer enforce the 2012 rule that requires companies to verify that products using valuable African minerals don’t benefit armed groups.
