LIMA Nov 13 (Reuters) - Peru's central bank could raise the benchmark interest rate next month from 3.50 percent if inflation quickens more than expected, the bank's chief economist said on Friday.

Adrian Armas added that the rise in consumer prices would likely be "somewhat more" than October's 0.14 percent increase. (Reporting By Teresa Cespedes; Editing by Chris Reese)
