UPDATE DAY

The rise in consumer prices accelerated again in June in the United States, and is now at its highest since November 1981, a new blow for the American president who has been trying for several months to curb inflation.

Inflation reached 9.1% in June year on year, against 8.6% the previous month, according to the consumer price index (CPI ) released Wednesday by the Labor Department. Over one month, the rise in prices amounted to 1.3%, against 1.0% in May.
