Two Australian drug smugglers in Indonesia were taken from their Bali prison Wednesday to an island where they will be executed, as the Australian leader said his country was "revolted" by their looming deaths after frantic diplomatic efforts to save them. Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, the ringleaders of the so-called "Bali Nine" drug smuggling gang, left the island's Kerobokan jail in a convoy of two armoured cars surrounded by security forces and a scrum of journalists, and were taken to Bali airport. The pair, sentenced to death in 2006 for trying to smuggle heroin out of Indonesia, were woken up in the early hours and given a few minutes to get ready, said local justice ministry official Nyoman Putra Surya. The pair were being flown to Cilacap, on Java island, and will then be transferred to Nusakambangan island, home to several high-security prisons.
