Indonesia has carried out the executions of four drug convicts, including three foreigners.

The Indonesian man and three Nigerians were killed by firing squad shortly after midnight local time at the Nusakambangan prison island.

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".
