A part of the tripwire system is seen at the camp where a polar bear attacked a group of British campers on Friday, in Spitsbergen August 5, 2011. The polar bear killed a 17-year-old boy and seriously injured four people camping in Norway's Svalbard archipelago in the Arctic, Norwegian officials said. Liv Asta Oedegaard, spokeswoman for the Svalbard governor's office, said the campers had surrounded their group of tents with a tripwire designed to set off a flare gun if touched by a bear. "If this tripwire worked, or if the bear crossed over it in a clever way, we don't know," Oedegaard said. Picture taken August 5, 2011. REUTERS/Scanpix Norway
