Coup d'Etat To World Trade Seen in Renco's $800 Million Toxic Lead Fight

Trucks drive past the smokestack of the Doe Run Peru refinery in La Oroya, Peru, on Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Most of La Oroyaís children suffer elevated lead levels, according to the Peruvian government. The question of responsibility for lead pollution in La Oroya is at the center of high-stakes clash between Peru and U.S. billionaire Ira Rennert, who owned Doe Run Peru for more than a decade through Renco Group Inc., a metals, mining and industrial conglomerate based in New York that has said it is not responsible for the childrenís ills.
