BERLIN, Oct. 1, 1946 (UP) - The condemned Nazi leaders will be executed in the Nuremberg prison, a spokesman for the Allied control council announced late today.

Highly reliable sources reported that the Nazis would be hanged October 16 - the last day of the 15-day period in which the execution was ordered - unless the control council ordered otherwise.

The council announced that the Nazis had until midnight Saturday to file clemency pleas with the secretariat of the tribunal at Nuremberg.
