Official meeting called ahead of Bali Nine executions

THE executions of Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran could be carried out in the coming week, with Australian embassy officials in Jakarta called to a meeting with the Indonesian Ministry of foreign affairs on Monday.

"The Australian Embassy in Jakarta, along with a number of other diplomatic missions, has been invited to a meeting with the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday," a spokeswoman said.

The Indonesian government has promised it will give 72 hours notice to those facing execution.
