BREAKING: - Brazil presidential candidate Campos killed in plane crash: GloboNews

(Reuters) - Brazilian presidential candidate Eduardo Campos was killed in a plane crash on Wednesday, local television channel GloboNews reported, throwing the country's October election into disarray and knocking local financial markets lower.
Campos' private jet crashed in bad weather in the coastal city of Santos, just south of Sao Paulo, as it was preparing to land. Television images showed smoke billowing from the crash site in a residential area.
GloboNews said Campos, the Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB) leader who was running third in opinion polls, died in the crash, without citing a source.
