 (Updates with Brazil rate hike)
 LONDON, April 21 (Reuters) - Brazil raised interest rates to 12 percent in a
split decision that highlighted the central bank's challenge of curbing
inflation without adding to a currency rally that is hurting the economy.
 The average interest rate set by 11 leading central banks -- the five that
decide monetary policy for the G7 nations plus six other major banks -- rose to
1.41 percent from 1.38 as a result.
 The average rate set by central banks of the Group of Seven nations rose to
0.59 percent this month, from 0.54 at the end of last year after the European
Central Bank delivered is first interest rate rise since mid-2008.
 The following table of average rates is aimed at reflecting the movement of
official policy rates during the economic cycle rather than actual borrowing
costs.
