Subject: Are millitants classified as civlians?

This may be a stupid question, but does anyone know if terrorists and millitants are classified as civilians according to the UN? The definition of civilian that I found was "anyone not inlisted in the millitary" Does that include terrorists and millitants as well?

HELL NO!!! Terrorists are 'illegal combatants' or irregular paramilitaries. They are ripe for destruction.

The best way to classify them is by designating them DOA - from "work-related" accidents. swhitebull
