    MEXICO CITY, June 22 (Reuters) - Mexican retail sales
slipped in April following three months of expansion, the
national statistics institute said on Monday, casting doubt on
the strength of a recovery in domestic demand in Latin America's
no. 2 economy. 
    Mexico's economy grew at its slowest pace in more than a
year during the first quarter, but officials have said that
consumption is improving.
