Jakarta summoned the Saudi Arabian ambassador Wednesday to protest the beheading of an Indonesian domestic worker and complain that her family and consular staff were not given prior notice of the execution.Human rights groups have used Zainab's beheading to urge Indonesia to abandon its support for the death penalty, as Jakarta presses ahead with plans to execute several foreigners on death row for drug crimes.The Saudi interior ministry said Zainab's execution was delayed until the victim's children were old enough to decide whether the punishment should proceed.Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said Indonesia would proceed with the executions as planned, despite protests over Zainab's case.
