CAIRO, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Egypt’s annual urban consumer price inflation fell to 3.1% in October, from 4.8% in September, the country’s official statistics agency CAPMAS said on Saturday.

Egypt is approaching the end of an IMF-backed economic reform programme that during 2017 saw the annual inflation rate rise to 33%. The country hiked domestic fuel prices in July as part of the terms of the agreement. (Reporting by Nadine Awadalla Writing by Amina Ismail Editing by Alexander Smith)
