Australia has demanded China apologise for posting a fake picture on a government Twitter account that depicted an Australian soldier murdering an Afghan child. The BBC reports that Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Beijing should be “utterly ashamed” for sharing the “repugnant” image. It comes amid escalating political tensions between the two countries. The image referred to alleged war crimes by some Australian soldiers. The findings from the Australian Defence Force inquiry sparked widespread condemnation, and are now being investigated by police. On Monday, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lijian Zhao posted a fabricated image that portrayed an Australian soldier with a bloody knife next to a child.
