Indonesia to execute more drug inmates

Indonesia’s attorney-general announced Tuesday that more inmates convicted of drug smuggling will be executed in “the near future” under the country’s campaign against the narcotics trade.

In July, four convicted smugglers -- three of them foreigners -- were brought before firing quads.

Last year, 14 inmates were executed, drawing heavy criticism from the international community, with some countries -- whose nationals had been put to death -- withdrawing ambassadors from Jakarta.
