Sudan's annual inflation climbs to 68.64 pct in Sept. - statistics agency

KHARTOUM, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Sudan’s inflation edged up to 68.64 percent in September year-on-year, from 66.82 percent in August, the state statistics agency said on Thursday.

Inflation jumped to more than 50 percent in January, when subsidy cuts triggered food price increases that kindled unrest. Since then inflation has continued to accelerates steadily despite attempts to slow price rises with strict limits on cash withdrawals.
