The Old Bali Blog « The Long Goodbye: Six drug traffickers executed in Indonesia

Six convicted drug traffickers - some of whom had been on death row for 10 years - were shot by firing squad at midnight on 17 Jan, 2015. Five foreigners and one Indonesian woman made up the numbers.

If you haven't worked it out yet, Indonesia is an extremely dangerous place to take, sell or traffic drugs.

And it's getting hotter.

More executions are slated for later in the year, including two Australian members of the notorious Bali Nine.

Roll on more diplomatic handbags-at-dawn between Australia and Indonesia.
