Australia spoke on Thursday about the possibility of a prisoner exchange with Indonesia in a final attempt to avoid the imminent execution of two of its nationals sentenced to death for drug trafficking.

They were convicted in 2006 of leading a network of heroin traffickers between the two countries.
