Nigerians & Zimbabweans drug Convicts to be executed in Indonesia

Indonesia has confirmed it will execute 14 people on death row for drug crimes in the coming days, including citizens of Nigeria and Zimbabwe.


UN human rights officials have expressed concern over the planned executions, urging Jakarta to put an end to "unjust" capital punishment.

They will be executed at Nusakambangan Prison Island. The prisoners have been notified of the plans for their executions, in accordance with Indonesian law, and could be put to death as early as Friday.

Attorney General Muhammad Prasetyo said the 14 had been put in isolation. The executions are due to take place by Sunday at the latest.
