Practice Relating to Rule 47. Attacks against Persons Hors de Combat
Section C. Quarter under unusual circumstances of combat
Mexico’s Army and Air Force Manual (2009), in a section on the 1949 Geneva Convention III, states:
The general principles protecting prisoners of war include the following:
A. Prisoners of war must not be unnecessarily exposed to danger while awaiting evacuation from a fighting zone. When they have been captured in unusual circumstances, which prevent them from being evacuated in the normal way, they must be released and all feasible precautions taken to ensure their safety.
