CAIRO, May 13 (Reuters) - Egypt is in talks with the International Monetary Fund for a second bundle of financial support after receiving $2.8 billion in emergency financing, the central bank deputy governor said on Wednesday.

Asked about a Bloomberg News report that Egypt would seek a further $5 bln from the IMF and $4 bln from other sources for a total of $9 bln, Rami Aboul Naga told Al Arabiya news channel that the number was close to that figure.
