Three Islamists sentenced to death for the Bali bombings which killed 202 people were executed by firing squad at midnight Saturday (1700 GMT), local television reported.

Amrozi, 47, his brother Mukhlas, 48, and ringleader Imam Samudra, 38, were killed with shots to the heart on the island prison of Nusakambangan off southern Java, TV One television reported quoting an official source.
There was no official confirmation but the attorney general's office in Jakarta has told journalists to expect an announcement.
The bombers were sentenced five years ago for the 2002 attacks on the resort island of Bali which killed more than 160 foreigners including 88 Australians, as well as 38 Indonesians.
They repeatedly said they wanted to die as "martyrs" for their Islamist cause but the executions were delayed by a series of failed appeals and most recently by the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in September.
Security forces are on high alert across the mainly Muslim archipelago amid fears of reprisal attacks.

Family Condemns Photos of Executed Bali Bombers on Web

Oct. 24, 2006: Imam Samudra, left, and Amrozi, front, two of the three rebels on death row for Bali attacks, attends prayer in prison in Cilicap, Indonesia.

The family of two Islamist extremists executed this week for the 2002 Bali bombings criticised an Indonesian Web site for publishing close-up photos of them in funeral shrouds, a report said Saturday.

Pictures of the faces of brothers Amrozi and Mukhlas as well as ringleader Imam Samudra after they were executed by firing squad on Nov. 9 appeared on the Islamist Ar Rahmah Web site.
The photos were captioned with text in Arabic and Indonesian praising the murderers as the "martyrs of the battle of Bali."
Amrozi's and Mukhlas's eyes were open but Samudra's were shut.
"The family has been trying to anticipate this as best as we can but in the end the photos were stolen," Mohammad Chozin, the elder brother of Amrozi and Mukhlas, told Detikcom news Web site.
"The family hasn't had the chance yet to ask Ar Rahman about this," he said.
Lawyer Fahmi Bachmid said the images were published against the will of the dead bombers.
The 2002 Bali bombings by the Jemaah Islamiahmilitant network killed 202 people including 88 Australians, in what the bombers said was the defense of Islam.
