MUMBAI (Reuters) - India physical gold buyers stayed away on Friday, as some demand in the previous session pushed prices about 2 percent higher, dealers said.

“Buying is very price sensitive this time..there is demand but people are very cautious,” said a dealer at a private bank, which deals in bullion.

International gold rose back towards $1,100 an ounce in Europe on Friday as news that European Union leaders had agreed a plan to aid debt-laden Greece lifted the euro and appetite for assets seen as higher risk, such as commodities.
