 (Repeats to attach to additional alerts)
    TOKYO, Oct 27 (Reuters) - Japan's core consumer prices rose
0.7 percent in September from a year earlier, government data
showed on Friday.
    The core consumer price index, which includes oil products
but excludes fresh food prices, compared with economists' median
estimate for a 0.8 percent annual gain.
    Stripping away the effect of fresh food and energy, consumer
prices rose 0.2 percent in September from a year ago.
    Core consumer prices in Tokyo, available a month before the
nationwide data, rose 0.6 percent in October from a year
earlier, versus a 0.5 percent annual rise seen by analysts in a
Reuters poll.
