Aussie Fury As CCP Publishes Fake War Crime Images

Start

A Chinese Communist Party official’s Twitter account shared an image depicting an Australian soldier murdering an Afghan child, prompting outrage from Australians.

The tweet, shared by foreign ministry spokesman Lijian Zhao, contains a fake image depicting an Australian soldier wielding a bloody knife adjacent to a child holding a lamb.

In response, the country’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison remarked Beijing should be “utterly ashamed” for sharing the “repugnant” image.

“The Chinese government should be totally ashamed of this post. It diminishes them in the world’s eyes. It is a false image and terrible slur on our defence forces,” he added.
