Euro zone consumer confidence rises in October

BRUSSELS, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Euro zone consumer confidence defied market expectations of a fifth straight month of decline and rose slighty in October, a flash estimate from the European Commission showed on Thursday.

The Commission said that consumer confidence in the 18 countries sharing the euro rose 0.3 points to -11.1 this month.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected a decline to -12.0.
