>> Paraguayan presidential candidate killed in helicopter crash
BUENOS AIRES, Feb. 3 (Xinhua) -- Paraguayan presidential candidate Lino Cesar Oviedo was killed when a helicopter carrying him crashed in northern Paraguay late Saturday, said reports from Asuncion on Sunday.
The 69-year-old leader of the National Union of Ethical Citizens was returning from a political rally late Saturday with his bodyguard when the chopper encountered bad weather, said the reports, citing Paraguay's airport authorities.
All the three on board, including a pilot, were killed in the crash, they said.
In April, Oviedo stood for the presidential election as Paraguay's third-largest opposition party.
The retired general and former army chief was accused of plotting to overthrow governments in the 1990s and served half of a 10-year sentence before being released.
