Peru consumer price index slips 0.47 pct in October

    LIMA, Nov 1 (Reuters) - Peru's consumer price index
 slipped 0.47 percent in October as food costs
continued to fall, marking the fifth negative reading this year,
state statistics agency Inei said on Wednesday.
    A Reuters poll had forecast a 0.10 percent drop in the index
in October.
    The annual inflation rate eased to 2.04 percent, at the
center of the central bank's 1-3 percent target range, Inei
said. The consumer price index has risen 1.41 percent so far
this year.
