RPT-Japan Dec core CPI rises 0.9 pct yr/yr

 (Attaches to additional alert)
    TOKYO, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Japan's core consumer prices rose
0.9 percent in December from a year earlier, government data
showed on Friday.
    The core consumer price index, which includes oil products
but excludes fresh food prices, compared with economists' median
estimate for a 0.9 percent annual gain.
    Stripping away the effect of fresh food and energy, consumer
prices rose 0.3 percent in December from a year ago.
    Core consumer prices in Tokyo, available a month before the
nationwide data, rose 0.7 percent in January from a year
earlier, versus a 0.8 percent annual rise seen by analysts in a
Reuters poll.
