LIMA, April 15 (Reuters) - Peru's economy slowed to expand by 0.94 percent in February on the year, missing market expectations, as construction and mining activity dropped, the government said on Wednesday.

The official reading, released by the state statistics agency Inei, was below the 1.35 percent expansion forecast in a Reuters poll.
