Sept. 10 (Bloomberg) -- Sudanese inflation accelerated to 42.1 percent in August from 41.6 percent in July as food prices increased, the Central Bureau of Statistics said.

Prices of food and drinks, the biggest component in the consumer price index, rose 3.9 percent in the month as the cost of meat, beans and vegetables increased as much as 11.8 percent, the Khartoum-based agency said today in an e-mailed statement.

Finance Minister Ali Mahmoud Abdel Rasoul said in December that Sudan was targeting an inflation rate of below 17 percent this year.
