Baqubah (IraqiNews.com) An Islamic State suicide bomber’s belt exploded prematurely, accidently killing the militant and 12 other comrades in Diyala, according to a top police official.

Diyala police chief Jassem al-Saadi said in a statement that twelve IS militants in Mekheisa region, northeast of Baqubah, were bidding farewell to a comrade who was on his way for a suicide attack. Saadi said that the explosive belt on the bomber’s body went off to kill well-wishers instead.

The incident occurred during what the rite which the group dubs “blood party”, according to Saadi.

Islamic State suicide bombers have escalated suicide and gun attacks against security forces and civilians over the past months as Iraqi government forces, backed by a U.S.-led coalition, proceed with a major offensive to drive the group out of its main stronghold in Iraq; Mosul.
Violence and armed conflicts left 824 Iraqis dead and wounded during the month of May, according to a monthly count by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq which excludes security members deaths.

Some security observers believe that even after IS’s main havens across Iraqi provinces are conquered, the group may still constitute a security threat through sleeper cells and lone wolf attacks. They believe attacks outside Mosul are designed to make up for the group’s losses there.

Say goodbye to crowded airplanes

It’s safe to say every single traveller has experienced being in a crowded aisle. Your seatmate could be unruly, moving around or going to the loo. All of which affects what could be a relaxing flight. That is why one of the best travel perks to have seats on your aisle completely empty.

That perk used to be only available by chance. But Etihad Airways will be offering it starting July 3.

According CNN Money, Etihad Airways has announced plans to sell ‘neighbour-free seats’ in its economy class flights. This will give passengers the chance to buy up to three seats next to their own. If you value some comfort during your flight, this is your chance.

In a statement, Etihad Airways said that guests can ‘bid’ for the additional space at the time of booking online. Successful bids will be confirmed 30 hours prior to departure.

So, say goodbye to stressful flights and say hello to relaxation!
