Three Christians get reprieve in Indonesia ...

Were slated to be executed for their role in Christian-Muslim riots in Sulawesi in 1998. [Al Jazeera]. Here's the Asianews story as well. Pope Benedict has appealed for them as well.
A few hours before their execution, the three Catholics sentenced to death for the 2000 deadly Poso clashes, went to confession and took part in the Eucharist. They met priests and their defence attorneys. But for some members of their legal team, the sentence will not be carried, at least not tonight.
