China govt posts fake pic of Australian soldier murdering child
Australia has demanded a Chinese official take down a fake image posted on Twitter depicting an Australian soldier holding a knife to the throat of an Afghan child.
In a media briefing condemning the image, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described it as "truly repugnant".
"It is utterly outrageous and cannot be justified on any basis," he said. "The Chinese government should be utterly ashamed of this post. It diminishes them in the world's eyes."
