The Saudi Arabian government has beheaded another Indonesian domestic worker, two days after the beheading of a woman who reportedly killed her employer.

Karni Binti Medi Tarsim was convicted of murdering a child in her care, with officials saying the 37-year-old stabbed a 4-year-old boy to death in the city of Yanbu in 2012.

But just like Siti Zainab's execution, the Indonesian foreign ministry said its representatives had obtained no prior information about the time, place or method of execution.

Also just as with Zainab's case, Indonesia's government summoned Saudi Arabia's ambassador in Jakarta in protest of Tarsim's beheading.

In a statement about Tarsim's case, the Indonesian foreign ministry expressed "regret and disappointment" that its representatives had obtained no information about details of the execution, even though an Indonesian official visited her a day before the sentence was carried out.

The ministry further added that "the government of Indonesia has done its utmost to provide legal protection and has sought forgiveness from the victim's family with the aim of getting Tarsim's death sentence commuted."

Meanwhile, Indonesia is set to execute several prisoners including a Nigerian for drug-related crimes.
