Practice Relating to Rule 34. Journalists
In 1971, during a debate in the Third Committee of the UN General Assembly, Brazil stated with respect to the protection of journalists that overwhelming support was to be found in the international community both for the basic principle that a distinction should be made between the treatment accorded to combatants and non-combatants and for the consequent adoption of measures to ensure the personal safety of journalists in areas of armed conflict.
