QUITO, Ecuador — A 5.2-magnitude quake left two Ecuadorean soccer fans dead and 50 others injured Sunday after part of a stadium collapsed, a local radio station said.

The victims were watching a soccer match in Quevedo, about 100 miles southwest of Quito, when the earthquake hit at 10:16 a.m. local time, causing part of the ceiling of the poorly maintained stadium to collapse, according to Radio Quito.
