Assassination Plot Revealed in Ecuador

Quito, Jul 25 (Prensa Latina) Ecuadorian Government Minister Gustavo Larrea disclosed a conspiracy against the government on Wednesday that was aimed at destabilizing the country and assassinating President Rafael Correa.

Speaking on local TV, Larrea informed that during a meeting on July 7 several people plotted to destabilize the current administration with actions to trigger a shortage of gas and other products.

The idea was put forward at that meeting to buy a missile to attack Correa, the minister said.

Related investigations began a day after information on the meeting was leaked, said Larrea, who denied the arrest of any of the connivers, and added that the people would be informed as soon as they have concrete elements and evidence.
