Pakistan's consumer inflation on Tuesday slowed slightly from a year earlier in February, though the monthly rate jumped on the back of higher food and energy prices and adds to growing political pressure facing Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The consumer price index (CPI) was at 12.2per cent in February year-on-year, the statistics bureau said, easing slightly from the previous month's two-year high of 13per cent.
On a monthly basis, the inflation rate jumped by 1.2per cent in February compared with a 0.4per cent rise the previous month, the bureau said in a statement.
Prices of food and non-food items kept an upward trajectory though others like eggs, potatoes, onions and sugar registered a slight decrease, the bureau said.
Surging food and energy prices have put Khan under increasing pressure, especially from his middle-classes support base.
Khan announced a cut in petrol and electricity prices on Monday despite a steep rise in the global oil market, pledging to freeze the new rates until the next budget in June.
The move comes as Khan's opposition, already engaged in street protests over what they say is his mismanagement of the economy and rising inflation, says it is set to propose a no- confidence motion in parliament to oust him.
