SAMARRA (AFP) – A car bomb mistakenly went off in a militant compound north of Baghdad on Monday, killing 21 insurgents including a suicide bomber, an anti-Qaeda militiaman and a police officer said.

The group were filming a propaganda video of the would-be suicide attacker when a technical glitch set off the car bomb in the Jilam area south of Samarra, according to Majeed Ali, the head of the Sahwa militia force in the city, and a police officer.
