Indonesia's president has dealt a blow to the fates of two members of the Bali Nine drug smuggling ring, signalling a reluctance to save foreigners from execution.
Bali Nine ring leader Andrew Chan's last chance to avoid the firing squad is a plea for mercy to Indonesia's president, but Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono says he rejects almost all mercy pleas.
Indonesians have been outraged by Saudi Arabia's decision to execute an Indonesian maid convicted of murdering her employer.
Today the president said his government could do little to stop them.
He then added: "When our brothers or sisters commit serious crimes and receive capital punishment, why should we give people from other nations clemency?"
Another Bali Nine drug smuggler, Myuran Sukumaran, is still waiting on his final court appeal against the death penalty.
