Congo Says Toxic Leak at Diamond Mine Part-Owned by Russia’s Alrosa Killed 12

The government of the Democratic Republic of Congo stated a poisonous-squander leak at a mine in neighboring Angola that is component-owned by the world’s biggest diamond miner has killed 12 people today and sickened countless numbers in the central African nation, deepening concerns about pollution in an industry normally energetic in difficult-to-monitor areas.

Congo’s ecosystem minister, Eve Bazaiba, instructed reporters Thursday that it would search for payment from Angola for the injury caused by the spill at the Catoca mine, in which Moscow-detailed Alrosa PJSC owns a 41% stake.
