A tour guide demonstrates a reconstructed "tiger trap" at the Chu Chi tunnel complex in Chu Chi, Vietnam. Steel or bamboo spikes lined the bottom of the pit and would kill or seriously wound anyone who fell victim to the trap. The device was only one of many ingenious booby traps that Viet Cong soldiers used against U.S. and South Vietnamese troops in the guerilla stronghold. July 2, 2011.
