Bloomberg reports that new rules have gone into effect which prohibit electronics makers  from buying minerals that help fund wars in Central Africa. The Conflict-Free Smelter program specifically bars electronics makers like Apple and Intel from buying  tungsten, tin ore, gold and coltan from Congo and neighboring countries  unless mineral processors can prove purchases don’t contribute to  conflict in eastern Congo.
