JAKARTA (Reuters) - A French death row inmate is not among the next round of drug convicts to be executed in Indonesia, a French embassy official said on Saturday.

French drug convict Serge Atlaoui was initially among a group of 10 inmates, which include nationals from Australia, Brazil, France, Ghana, Nigeria, and the Philippines, due to be executed soon by firing squad.

An official at the French embassy in Jakarta told Reuters it had been notified by the Attorney General's Office that its national would not be in the next round of executions.
