    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.
