According to international standards, law enforcement officials may only use firearms in dispersing a violent assembly to protect themselves or others against an imminent threat of death or serious injury and only when less extreme means are insufficient to achieve this objective. Intentional lethal use of firearms is permitted only when strictly unavoidable in order to protect life.
