UPDATE 1-Mexico consumer confidence rebounds in May from 7-month low
(Adds data, table, background) MEXICO CITY, June 5 (Reuters) - Mexican consumer confidence rose in May from a seven-month low, pointing to strengthening consumer demand in Latin America's second economy. Consumer confidence, when adjusted for seasonal swings , climbed 0.5 percent to 91.5 from an upwardly revised 91.1 in April, data from the national statistics institute showed on Friday. Weak domestic demand has held back the wider economy, which is seen growing around 2.66 percent this year after expanding at a 2.1 percent pace last year.
