QUITO - Ecuador's President Rafael Correa on Monday evening said two government supporters were killed and several suffered stab wounds during a campaign rally almost two weeks before a presidential election that the leftist leader is expected to win comfortably.

"Crazy person stabs seven AP people while they were waiting for the President. Two have been killed," Correa said in his Twitter account, referring to supporters of the ruling Alianza Pais political movement, AP.The incident occurred ahead of a campaign rally in Quininde, a town in the western Esmeraldas province. The interior ministry said through its Twitter account that police had arrested the person who they think carried out the attack.



Correa, an ally of socialist Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez is expected to win the Feb. 17 vote. Polls give him between 50 percent and 60 percent of votes, at least 30 percentage points ahead of his nearest rival, Guillermo Lasso, a former banker.
