Ten death row convicts convicted of drug smuggling are due to be executed together in Indonesia "for the sake of efficiency".

Ten death row convicts convicted of drug smuggling are due to be executed together in Indonesia "for the sake of efficiency," a report said.

Three of these convicts are from Nigeria while the others are from France, Philippines, Ghana, Brazil, Indonesia and two are Australian.

"I think doing it at the same time is better in terms of efficiency, effectiveness and security," Indonesian Attorney-General Muhammad Prasetyo was quoted as saying by Viva.co.id news website.

On Monday a court rejected a final appeal by Australians Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran which challenged the country's president refusal to grant them mercy.

Prasetyo said that Nigerian Silvester Anderson and Serge Atlaoui of France's appeals are pending so they could still be saved from execution.

"It should have been over, but when there are challenges...we respect them," Prasetyo said.

No specific date has been set for the executions as yet.
