The bombers had told their families in their wills that they wanted

The three are being held in a maximum security jail on Nusakambangan
island in Central Java, hundreds of kilometres from their families who
live in East and West Java.
The bombers have repeatedly told the media they are ready to die as
martyrs, and will not seek presidential clemency.
Indonesia does not make public the timing and exact location of
executions but a deputy attorney general told reporters last month that
it would be in Central Java.
