(Repeats to attach to additional alerts)

TOKYO, Dec 20 (Reuters) - Japan’s core consumer prices rose 0.5% in November 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 0.5% annual gain.

Stripping away the effect of fresh food and energy, consumer prices rose 0.8% in November from a year ago. (Reporting by Leika Kihara)
