By Harold Hutchison
At least 22 people were killed when an instructor training would-be murder-suicide bombers accidentally set off a device. The location was also used to store explosives and materials.
According to multiple media reports, the blast, which occurred north of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad in the town of Samara, also wounded fifteen would-be members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, an al-Qaeda affiliate once headed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Eight would-be members were captured by Iraqi authorities.
