Chile's inflation reached 0.9% in September, government statistics agency INE said on Friday, decelerating from the 1.2% reported in the previous month and slightly below an expected 0.95% in a Reuters poll of economists.

The monthly figure took the Andean country's 12-month rate of consumer price increases to 13.7%, still far above the central bank's target range of 2% to 4%. (Reporting by Fabian Andres Cambero and Gabriel Araujo; Editing by Steven Grattan)
