A Filipino maid facing the death penalty after being convicted of drug trafficking has been moved to an island prison in Indonesia where the execution will take place.

An armored personnel carrier and a car were seen arriving at a port Friday for the short trip to Nusakambangan island, and prison officials said Mary Jane Veloso was inside the car.

Veloso is among 10 drug smugglers whose planned executions last month were postponed due to last-minute appeals. The others are three Nigerian men, two Australian men, a man each from Brazil, Ghana, France and Indonesia.

Indonesian officials have not said when the executions, by firing squad, will take place. Indonesia has vowed to carry through with the executions despite various appeals from the countries of the convicted.
