Sudan's inflation rises slightly in November to 68.93 pct

CAIRO (Reuters) - Sudan's inflation rose to 68.93 percent in November year-on-year, from 68.44 pct in October, the state statistics agency said on Sunday.

Inflation jumped to more than 50 percent in January, when subsidy cuts triggered food price increases that kindled unrest. Since then it has continued to accelerate despite attempts to slow price rises with strict limits on cash withdrawals.
