LHASA - Southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region will offer up to 300,000 yuan (48,003.8 US dollars) to whistle blowers with clues concerning violent terror attacks in a move to promote stability in the region, local authorities said Saturday.

According to a document published by the regional public security department, the reward will cover tip-offs on overseas terrorist organizations and their members' activities inside China, the spreading of religious extremism, terror related propaganda, those producing, selling and owning weapons, activities that help terrorists cross national borders and terror activities via the internet.

People can report tips through the "110" emergency line or go to the police department to report in person.

Awards will vary based on the significance of the tip-offs. Anonymous tip-offs will not be rewarded and the safety of the tipsters will be protected, the officials said.

The document said people who falsely accuse others and spread fabricated information will be investigated for legal responsibility.
