RPT-Japan May core CPI rises 0.7 pct yr/yr

 (Repeats to attach to additional alerts)
    TOKYO, June 22 (Reuters) - Japan's core consumer prices rose
0.7 percent in May 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 0.7 percent annual gain.
    Stripping away the effect of fresh food and energy, consumer
prices rose 0.3 percent in May from a year ago.
