Indonesia has executed six people convicted of drug offences, including five foreigners, marking the first time capital punishment has been carried out under new President Joko Widodo.

All eyes are now on two Australian prisoners who are among the 58 still on death row for drug-related crimes.

The Australian government is trying hard to prevent their execution. Despite concerns about the potential impact on international relations, however, many in Indonesia believe the government should not back down.
