Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Sudan’s inflation rate increased to 45.3 percent in October, the highest in a year, from 41.6 percent a month earlier after food prices increased, the Central Bureau of Statistics said.

The cost of food and drink, the biggest component in the consumer-price index, increased in 13 out of 17 states, the Khartoum-based agency said today in an e-mailed statement.

Finance Minister Ali Mahmoud Abdel Rasoul said in December last year that Sudan was targeting an inflation rate of less than 17 percent in 2012.
