Euro zone December inflation eases
(01-16 18:42)

Euro zone inflation fell to 0.8 percent in December from 0.9 percent in November, official data showed amid concerns that falling prices could undermine growth prospects.
Inflation has fallen steadily in recent months and the economy has grown a marginal 0.1 percent in third quarter 2013 after 0.3 percent in the second.
In December 2012, inflation in the 17-member euro zone was at 2.2 percent but it fell to a four-year low of 0.7 percent in October.
The Eurostat statistics agency figures were unchanged from its first estimate given earlier this month.
December inflation in the full 28-member European Union was unchanged at 1 percent, Eurostat said.—AFP
