PARIS, April 13 (AFP) - French consumer prices rose by 0.60 percent in March from the February figure putting inflation over 12 months at 1.9 percent, the national statistics institute INSEE reported on Wednesday.

Prices had risen in March because the price of clothing had risen sharply after the sales period, because oil prices were high and because the price of fresh food had risen, INSEE said.
