    A copy of the Tallinn Manual, a rulebook on cyberwarfare, is held up in a posed photograph in London, Tuesday, March 19, 2013. Even cyberwar has rules, and one group of experts is publishing a manual to prove it. The handbook due to be published later this week applies the venerable practice of international law to the world of electronic warfare in an effort to show how hospitals, civilians, and neutral nations can be protected in an information age fight.

    Judge Awn Shawkat Al-Khasawneh, third left, President of the court Japan's Judge Owada, center, Vice-President of the Court Slovakia's Judge Peter Tomka, third right, and Judge Koroma from Sierra Leone, second right, attend the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands, Monday Sept. 12, 2011. Germany has argued to the United Nations' highest court that Italian courts have no jurisdiction to order it to pay reparations to victims of Nazi war crimes. Germany said that in 2008 the Italian courts violated international law and its sovereignty in ruling that Berlin must compensate an Italian civilian who was sent to a German labor camp in 1944. Germany has paid tens of millions of dollars in war reparations under various agreements since 1953. Italy says violations of humanitarian law override other laws and international accords.
