May 9 (Bloomberg) -- Most of the children who live in the mountain town of La Oroya, Peru, suffer from elevated lead levels, according to Peruvian government tests. Many there blame the problem on Doe Run Peru, a complex of smelters at one end of the town. The question of responsibility for lead pollution in La Oroya is at the center of a high-stakes clash between Peru and U.S. billionaire Ira Rennert, who owned Doe Run for more than a decade through Renco Group Inc. Citizens of La Oroya question who is responsible for their childrens' health. Bloomberg's Maureen Damer reports. (Source: Bloomberg)
