CORRECTED-Azeri SOFAZ sold $793.1 mln in forex market auctions in Q1 - cenbank

(Corrects first paragraph to say 37 pct, not 47 pct)

BAKU, May 16 (Reuters) - Azeri central bank said on Tuesday that the state sovereign wealth fund SOFAZ has sold $793.1 million in the forex market auctions in the first quarter, down 37 percent year-on-year.
