Indonesian policemen stand guard in front of ambulances at Wijayapura port near the prison island of Nusa Kambangan in CilacapBy Kanupriya Kapoor CILACAP, Indonesia (Reuters) - Nine drug traffickers met their families for what could be the final time at an Indonesian maximum security prison on Tuesday, after Jakarta rejected international pleas for clemency and ordered their executions to proceed, possibly within hours. The death penalties imposed on eight foreigners and an Indonesian have been condemned by the United Nations, and strained ties between neighbors Australia and Indonesia. "We're hoping for a miracle," Marites Veloso, the sister of death-row inmate Mary Jane Veloso of the Philippines, told reporters as she entered the prison for a final visit. In chaotic scenes outside the jail, Australian family members, some weeping, arrived early to offer their final goodbyes to Myuran Sukumaran and Andrew Chan.
