Indonesia execution of Frenchman would damage relations: Hollande

PARIS (AFP) - French President Francois Hollande on Wednesday urged Indonesia not to execute a Frenchman facing the death penalty for drug offences, warning that it would damage ties between the two nations.

Executing Serge Atlaoui, 51, "would be damaging for Indonesia, damaging for the relations that we would like to have with it," Hollande said at a press conference.
