Graphic Pics:Corpses Of Nigerian Drug Convicts Set On Fire In Indonesia

The Indonesian government has cremated one of the four persons executed Thursday night for drug trafficking.
However, bodies of the three others were being prepared for burial.

Controversy had been trailing the handling of the process, which saw the other 10 prisoners slated for death – including citizens from India, Pakistan and Zimbabwe – spared at the last minute.

Authorities did not give a reason for the reprieve, but the prison island where they were expected to be executed in outdoor clearings was hit by a major storm as the other sentences were carried out.

Attorney General Muhammad Prasetyo said Friday the 10 inmates had been returned to their cells, suggesting their executions were not imminent.

"The fate of the other 10 we will determine later. We will see when the right time will be," Prasetyo told reporters.

"But one thing is for sure — we will never stop executing people on death row."
