Australia has recalled its ambassador from Indonesia after two Australian men, Andrew Chan and Myuran Sukumaran, were executed along with others from Nigeria, Brazil, and Ghana on the prison island of Nusakambangan for drug smuggling on Tuesday April 28, 2015.

Brazil’s government also expressed its “deep dismay” at the execution of one of its citizens, Rodrigo Gularte.
