Practice Relating to Rule 71. Weapons That Are by Nature Indiscriminate
In its written statement submitted to the ICJ in the Nuclear Weapons (WHO) case
in 1993, Rwanda stated: “The use of nuclear weapons by a State during a war or an armed conflict constitutes a contravention of the rules of IHL in general and of the [1980 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons] in particular.”
According to the Report on the Practice of Rwanda, “landmines and bombs” are considered to be weapons with indiscriminate effects.
