Practice Relating to Rule 106. Conditions for Prisoner-of-War Status
Section C. Situations where combatants cannot distinguish themselves
Madagascar’s Military Manual (1994) states:
All combatants are required to distinguish themselves from the civilian population during each military engagement or a preparatory military operation. Regular armed forces or those forces attached to them distinguish themselves usually by wearing uniform. However, where because of the nature of hostilities, they are unable to do so, they do not lose their combatant status provided that they carry their arms openly.
