The [/news/china/index.html Chinese] government has attacked Australia over war crimes allegations against SAS troops with a fake image showing an Aussie soldier holding a knife to the throat of an Afghan child. 
China's foreign ministry spokesman Lijian Zhao posted the computer-generated image on [/sciencetech/twitter/index.html/sciencetech/twitter/index.html Twitter] on Monday, writing: đi du lịch ba li 'Shocked by murder of Afghan civilians and prisoners by Australian soldiers.

We strongly condemn such acts, and call for holding them accountable.' 
The gruesome image shows a smiling soldier in uniform covering a barefoot child with the Aussie flag as the youngster clutches a lamb.  
The Chinese government has attacked Australia over war crimes allegations by posting this falsified image on Twitter
The soldier holds a large, bloody knife to the child's throat above the sarcastic caption: du lịch ba li 'Don't be afraid, we are coming to bring you peace!' 
The image refers to a recently launched investigation into allegations that a small number of Australian troops illegally killed Afghan civilians including two 14-year-old boys whose throats were slit. 
Australian soldiers allegedly cut the throats of two young boys and dumped their bodies in a river because they thought they were Taliban sympathisers. 
Prime Minster [/news/scott-morrison/index.html Scott Morrison] slammed the 'repugnant' post and said he has asked China and Twitter to remove it. 
'The Chinese government should be totally ashamed of this post. It diminishes them in the world's eyes,' he said in a virtual press conference.
'Australia is seeking an apology from the ministry of foreign affairs, from the Chinese government for kynghidongduong.vn this outrageous post. 
'We are also seeking its removal immediately and have also contacted Twitter to take it down immediately.' 
China's foreign ministry spokesman Lijian Zhao posted the fake image with this tweet
Mr Morrison said Twitter should take down the image because it is false.
'It is a false image, and a terrible slur on our great defence forces and the men and women who've served in that uniform for over 100 years,' he said.
'It is utterly outrageous and cannot be justified on any basis whatsoever.' 
The image was created last week by graphic designer Wuhe Qilin, who is famous for his anti-Western propaganda. 
Mr Morrison said he has tried to speak to President Xi Jinping and ministers have tried to call their counterparts but the Chinese are not picking up the phone. 
The provocative post is likely to worsen tensions between Beijing and Canberra which have escalated since Mr Morrison infuriated Australia's largest trading partner by calling for an independent inquiry into the origins of coronavirus in April.
China has recently held up Australia's coal and seafood exports and last week put a 200 per cent tariff on Aussie wine despite the two countries signing a free trade deal in 2015. 
Earlier this year Beijing slapped an 80 per cent tariff on Australian barley, suspended beef imports and told students and tourists not to travel Down Under. 
'There are undoubtedly tensions that exist between China and Australia, but this is not how you deal with them,' Mr Morrison said.
A four-year Australian Defence Force inquiry earlier this month reported evidence of 39 murders of civilians or prisoners by 25 Aussies serving in Afghanistan from 2009 to 2016. 
The report alleged troops would force new recruits to get their first kills by murdering prisoners in a practice known as 'blooding'.  
The Australian government has set up a special investigator to probe the allegations.

Troops involved face criminal charges and being stripped of medals. 
Prime Minster Scott Morrison (pictured in a press conference on Monday) slammed the 'disgusting and disgraceful' post and said he has asked China and Twitter to remove it

In a press briefing on Friday, Mr Zhou - who is regularly critical of Australia's foreign policy - said the allegations make Australia hypocritical for raising concerns about China's alleged detention of Muslims in Xinjiang province.
'Australia and some other western countries always portray themselves as human rights defenders and wantonly criticise other countries' human rights conditions,' he said.
'The facts revealed by this report fully exposed the hypocrisy of the human rights and freedom these western countries are always chanting.' 
China's criticism comes after Russia claimed the allegations had weakened Australia's international standing.
Moscow's foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the allegations called into question Australia's commitment to protecting the rules-based world order.
