Authorities in Northwest China's Xinjiang have announced more than 300-million yuan in reward money for people who help hunt suspected terrorists. The money is the equivalent to about 48-million US dollars.

More than 10-thousand officials and locals attended an award ceremony in Hotan Prefecture on Sunday, where the first batch of reward money was issued.

Six people who offered key tips leading to the location of the suspected terrorists were each given 100-thousand yuan.

Hu Jinping is director of the Karakax Public Security Bureau.

"The awards ceremony will further encourage more people to participate in the move to maintain social stability and fight against violent terrorist attacks."

More than 4 million yuan was offered to locals to acknowledge their bravery in hunting a group of 10 suspected terrorists.

The suspects, part of a group identified on July 27th, was rounded up early in the morning on Friday in a corn field.

With the help of more than 30,000 volunteers, officers chased the suspects to an abandoned house, where they resisted arrest by throwing explosives into the crowd. Police fired back and shot dead nine and captured one.
