BUENOS AIRES, July 15 (Reuters) - Argentine inflation slowed for a fifth consecutive month to 1.3 percent in June from 1.4 percent in May, official data showed on Tuesday.

A Reuters poll of 10 analysts showed a median forecast of 1.8 percent with expectations ranging from 0.8 percent to 2.3 percent. The spread underlined the paucity of available information.
