CILACAP, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesian television networks say the government has carried out executions of people convicted of drug crimes.

Three networks said Friday the executions occurred not long after midnight local time. The government has not yet made an announcement.

Earlier this week, Indonesia's attorney-general said 14 people, mostly foreigners, would be executed.

Relatives, rights groups and foreign governments had urged Indonesia to spare the lives of the 14.
