Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has begged Indonesian leader Joko Widodo not to execute two Australian drug smugglers by firing squad. The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Abbott has urged Joko Widodo to show mercy to Myuran Sukumaran, who faces death by firing squad after his appeal for clemency was rejected. The plea is the latest move in an Ongoing campaign to save the lives of Sukumaran and his childhood friend and fellow heroin smuggler Andrew Chan. Chan’s appeal for clemency has yet to be heard but if it fails the childhood friends will be executed by firing squad and will die together.
