Suicide bomb instructor accidentally kills 22 militants in his class
   
 


By Jeremy Herb



Nearly two dozen militants were killed in a suicide bombing training class in Iraq Monday when the instructor accidentally set off a belt packed with explosives, the New York Times reports.

An Iraqi army officer said that the teacher conducting the class was a prolific recruiter who was “able to kill the bad guys for once.”

The Sunni militants were part of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is battling Iraqi government forces in the country’s western Anbar province.
Twenty-two militants were killed in the blast — which occurred because the instructor conducted a demonstration with a belt he didn’t realize had live explosives — and 15 more were injured, Iraqi army and police officials told the Times.

Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape the camp in the northeastern Samara province, the officials said.

The ISIS has overtaken cities in Anbar in recent weeks, including Fallujah, where U.S. forces once took heavy casualties.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
