Blowing up innocent civilians is a dangerous business by nature, therefore it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the training can present a hazard as well. So learned the attendees of a suicide-bombing class by an instructor in Iraq who accidentally used a belt packed with live explosives to demonstrate proper detonating technique, thus blowing up his students. The blast killed 22 people and injured another 15, all members of the Sunni militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS (you’re welcome, Archer fans). As they say, those who can’t do, teach.
