Pakistan's inflation rate accelerated to 4.22 percent year-on-year in February from 3.66 percent in January, the Bureau of Statistics said on Thursday.

On a month-on-month basis, prices rose by 0.28 percent in February, the bureau said.

The rise in month-on-month inflation was mostly due to higher prices of food items such as tomatoes, peas, oranges and chicken.
