A further 10 convicts who had been expected to be killed had a last-minute stay of execution.
 
Amnesty International condemned the killings as a “deplorable act” that violated local and international law.
 
Indonesia’s Deputy Attorney-General Noor Rachmad said it was “not a pleasant thing but it was to implement the law”.
 
“The executions are only aimed at halting drug crimes,” he said, adding that the rest “will be carried out in stages”.
