SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korean exports in February rose 1.5 percent from a year earlier, revised customs data showed on Friday, marginally lower than the initial estimates and suggesting that external demand remains modest.

Exports to the European Union rose 10.6 percent from a year earlier last month, while those to China rose by 3.8 percent. Shipments to the United States fell by 6.7 percent, however.
