From the New York Daily News:
Iraqi suicide bomb pupils fail finals in extremist training class as 22 die
The blast claimed the lives of almost two dozen militants at a training camp for ISIS — a group that even Al Qaeda has disowned — on car bombs and explosive belts in an orchard north of Baghdad on Monday. Police arrested 23 men trying to flee.

According to Iraqi officials, the wannabe terrorists were gathered around the instructor learning how to make car bombs and explosive belts when one of the belts malfunctioned and blew them to hell.
The blundering tutor was not identified by name, but an Iraqi Army officer told the New York Times he was known as a recruiter of young militants who was “able to kill the bad guys for once.”
Iraqi security forces rushed to the area after hearing the explosion and arrested 23 survivors — 15 of them wounded — as they tried to flee the camp for aspiring suicide bombers 60 miles north of Baghdad.
