JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia’s attorney general will decide in a few days on the date for the execution of up to 11 convicts, mostly foreigners, a government official said on Thursday.

“It will be announced later. In a few days, but definitely not today,” attorney general’s spokesman Tony Spontana told reporters after he was asked when the date would be announced.
