Islamist suicide bomb seminar turns out to be more immersive than expected.

I’ll give the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorists points for… well, dying, I guess:

A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.

Twenty-two ISIS members were killed, and 15 were wounded, in the explosion at the camp, which is in a farming area in the northeastern province of Samara, according to the police and army officials.

Thirty-seven casualties on an own-goal? As our British cousins would say*, that’s ISIS all over.

Via Hot Air Green Room, and you can imagine the sympathy that they’re showing.
