CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Monday he had information about a planned assassination attempt against his opposition rival Henrique Capriles.

"The head of intelligence met with a team of the Miranda governor, because there's some information out there that they want to kill him," Chavez said in a phone call to state TV. "It's not the government, not at all, on the contrary."

Chavez, who is due to face Miranda state governor Capriles in an Oct. 7 presidential vote, said the government had offered protection to the opposition leader, but gave no more details of the alleged plot against him.
