Business Insider reported:
During a training demonstration at a terrorist camp north of Baghdad on Monday, a commander from the Islamic State, formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives, killing himself and 21 trainees.
With suicide attacks in public places having become commonplace in the country, which has descended into chaos following the advance of the Sunni extremist group, the accident became a source of dark humor for locals, the New York Times reported, adding that the humor was quickly replaced with a sense of sadness, resignation and anger at the ongoing violence that has threatened to tip the country into civil war.
“This is so funny. It shows how stupid they are,” Raad Hashim, a local who works at a liquor store near the site of a restaurant bombing last week, said about the bungled training.
