KIGALI, Feb 10 (Reuters) - Rwanda's year-on-year inflation increased to 1.3 percent in January, the statistics office said on Saturday, up from 0.7 percent in December.

The monthly inflation increase was 0.2 percent.

The increase was mostly due to non-food items like housing, fuels, electricity and gas, the National Institute of Statistics of Rwanda said.
