German police have quadrupled a reward to €100,000 (£80,000) for information on a four-year series of shootings at lorries loaded with cars, saying the attackers are now using more dangerous weapons.

Only one person has been injured in more than 700 shootings, which started in mid-2008 and have occurred across Germany’s south and west.

Police are intensifying their investigation, because whoever is behind the attacks switched in June from using .22 ammunition to larger-calibre 9mm bullets.

Investigators have determined that the shots were fired from moving vehicles.
