A young Nigerian boy walks past excavated soil contaminated with lead at Dareta village, Anka district in Zamfara State on June 10, 2010. An outbreak of lead poisoning linked to illegal gold mining killed more than 160 people in Nigeria. More than 100 of those killed in the poisoning in recent weeks are children aged five years or under.
