CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt's foreign reserves rose by $441 million in October, the central bank said on its website on Monday.

Net international reserves were $15.484 billion at the end of October, up from $15.043 billion at the end of September, the bank said.

The reserves have plunged by more than half since a popular uprising in January 2011, which scared away tourists and investors, two of Egypt's main sources of foreign currency.
