Death Row Brit 'Deeply Saddened' By Executions

A British drugs smuggler facing the death penalty in Indonesia has said she is "deeply saddened" at the deaths of two Australians executed in the country yesterday.

Lindsay Sandiford, 58, said her fellow inmates were reformed men who had "touched the lives of a great many people after helping to rehabilitate prisoners".
Myuran Sukumaran, 33, and Andrew Chan, 31, were killed by firing squad in Besi prison on the island of Nusakambangan despite pleas for clemency from the Australian government.
The men were ringleaders of a group of seven other Australians arrested in 2005 for attempting to smuggle 8.2kg of heroin out of Indonesia to Australia.
