Côte d’Ivoire’s Teaching Manual (2007) provides in Book IV (Instruction of heads of division and company commanders):
II.2.2. Booby-traps and other devices
A “booby-trap” is any device or material which is designed, constructed or adapted to kill or injure and which functions unexpectedly when a person disturbs or approaches an apparently harmless object or performs an apparently safe act. The expression “other devices” means manually emplaced munitions and devices, including improvised exploding devices, designed to kill, injure or damage and which are activated manually, by remote control or automatically after a lapse of time. …
Booby-traps and other devices linked or associated with the following objects are prohibited:
- internationally recognized protective signs and emblems;
- sick, wounded or dead persons;
- burial or cremation sites or graves;
- medical transportation, medical supplies, medical equipment and medical facilities;
- children’s toys or other objects designed for the feeding, hygiene, clothing or education of children;
- food or drink;
- kitchen utensils or appliances (except those in military supply depots, military locations or establishments);
- objects for religious worship;
- historic monuments, works of art or places of worship which constitute the cultural or spiritual heritage of peoples;
- animals or their carcasses.
It is prohibited to use booby-traps and other devices in the form of apparently harmless portable objects which are specifically designed and constructed to contain explosive material. …
Explosive booby-traps must not be employed or used as substitutes for anti-personnel mines. If booby-traps are used legitimately, they must not cause superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering.
