The Third Geneva Convention regarding prisoners of war in article 4 clearly states: “Members of other militias and members of other volunteer corps, including those of organized resistance movements, belonging to a Party to the conflict and operating in or outside their own territory, even if this territory is occupied, provided that such militias or volunteer corps, including such organized resistance movements, fulfill the following conditions.” (Geneva Conventions, 1949) This section of the Geneva Convention clearly gives the rights of all three groups—enemy combatants, friendly combatants, and persons not connected to either side—protections....   [tags: Military]
