CAIRO, May 14 (Reuters) - The Egyptian pound weakened on Wednesday at an exceptional central bank sale of $1.1 billion aimed at supplying dollars to importers of essential foodstuffs.
The central bank announced a cut-off price of 7.0950 pounds to the dollar at the auction, 5 piastres weaker than at the last central bank foreign exchange sale held on Monday, when the cut-off price was 7.0451.
The central bank did not say whether it had sold the full amount of foreign currency offered. (Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by John Stonestreet)
