Chinese authorities are offering generous rewards to
anyone who provides information on security threats during the Olympic
A report Friday by China’s state-run Xinhua news agency
says individuals could receive as much as $73,000 for tips over the
next several months, from July 10 to October 31.
authorities say rewards would be paid for substantial information on
terrorist attacks and groups planning to sabotage the games, such as,
they say, the Falun Gong.
Rewards would also be paid for information regarding the deaths of individuals involved in the Olympics and foreigners.
Chinese government announced this week that it has already broken up
five alleged terrorist groups and arrested more than 80 people
suspected of plotting to sabotage the Olympics.
China says terrorism is the biggest threat to the Olympic Games.
