Indonesia has given a 72 hours notice to a group of death row inmates awaiting execution. The ABC has been told there are 14 prisoners on the list to be executed, including foreign nationals from

Pakistan and Nigeria, and one Indonesian woman.

 

Lawyers for some of the group have told the ABC their clients may seek last-minute clemency from President Joko Widodo, meaning their executions could be delayed.

 

It will be the first round of executions since Australians Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan faced the firing squad in April last year, and the third round endorsed by the current President.
