    MEXICO CITY, June 20 (Reuters) - Mexican retail sales rose
in April from March, growing for the second month in a row after
a recent slump and pointing toward stronger domestic demand in
Latin America's No. 2 economy.
    Mexico is struggling to recover from a slowdown last year
and analysts have cut back growth expectations to less than 3
percent this year after a weaker than expected first quarter.
