Iraq Promises to Treat Prisoners Humanely

Iraq will observe all the principles on treating prisoners of war set out in the Geneva Convention, according to a high-ranking official from the Iraqi Defence Ministry. The official said that Iraq is a civilised nation that treats everyone humanely, including prisoners of war.

US President George Bush yesterday called on the Iraqi government to 'show humanity to captured American soldiers.' Bush also promised to observe the Geneva Convention with regard to Iraqi prisoners.
