[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Eight people — including seven foreign nationals — were executed by firing squad in Indonesia on Wednesday for drug smuggling, local reports said.

A Filipino woman — who’d been due to face the firing squad as well — was granted a stay of execution, Indonesia’s Attorney General Muhammad Prasetyo said Wednesday.

He declined comment on the fates of the other eight — two Australians, four Nigerians, a Brazilian and an Indonesian man.

Indonesian media reported they were all executed shortly after midnight.
