JAKARTA - Indonesia has asked foreign embassies to go to a maximum security prison for the expected execution of 10 mainly foreign drug convicts, although an official 72-hour notice of execution has not been given yet, foreign officials said on Friday.

"It's true, we have been told to be there on Saturday," said a foreign embassy who asked not to be identified because she was not authorized to speak to the media.

"We still don't know when the actual date of execution will happen but we expect that it will be in days," she said.
