The government of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has offered the public rewards of up to five million yuan (774,000 U.S. dollars) for information on terrorism.
Those who provide police with significant information on planned attacks, hijacking, assassinations, poisoning, blasts or sabotage of key infrastructure facilities, can get 200,000 yuan to 5 million yuan, the government said in a statement on Monday.
Lesser rewards are on offer to anyone providing terror information deemed less significant, and informants can apply to be rewarded with government jobs or social insurance, according to the statement.
Previously, the authorities in regional capital Urumqi offered up to one million yuan for terror information.
In the first 11 months after a terrorism crackdown launched in May 2014, Xinjiang police busted 81 terrorism cases based on public tip-offs.
