    Scott Morrison’s demand for an apology over the doctored image of an Australian soldier tweeted by a top Chinese diplomat has backfired, with the Prime Minister himself now the target of pro-China trolling on Twitter and other social media platforms.

    The image — edited to show an Australian soldier holding a knife to an Afghan child’s throat — was posted on Monday by Zhao Lijian, spokesperson of China’s Foreign Ministry.

    China’s Deputy Ambassador to Australia, Wang Xining, accused Scott Morrison of over-reacting.
