Playing Video Games Could Be a War Crime, Red Cross Says

http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2011/12/video-games-war-crime/

“The Inter­na­tion­al Com­mit­tee of the Red Cross, based in Gene­va, is pon­der­ing whether the vio­lence in video games vio­lates inter­na­tion­al law. Lest any­one fear that UN heli­copters are going to swoop down and con­fis­cate their PS3ICRCspokesman Bijan Fred­er­ic Farnou­di empha­sized that so far, the issue has only been a side dis­cus­sion dur­ing a recentICRC con­fer­ence. Farnou­di says no for­mal ICRC rec­om­men­da­tion is planned at this time, but the orga­ni­za­tion is con­tact with the game indus­try and will be pub­lish­ing a Q&A on its Web site.”
