'At all times humanely treated’

War is hell. But as the above phrase from the 1929 Geneva Convention on the Treatment of Prisoners of War implies, humanity can be maintained in the way those who are detained are treated by their captors. In this practice exercise by Afghan authorities recently, the ICRC was invited to observe and make comments relative to international humanitarian law. It is part of the comprehensive efforts the ICRC has been making during this conflict, as in many others, to dialogue with all parties to the conflict on issues of proper treatment of detainees, protection of civilian populations, use of weapons that could cause indiscriminate death to civilians and many other issues.
