BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Euro zone consumer confidence fell slightly in June, figures released on Wednesday by the European Commission showed.

The EU executive arm said in a flash estimate that euro zone consumer morale decreased to -7.3 points in June from -7.0 in May, after having risen for two consecutive months. The figure remains above the euro zone's long-term average.

Economists polled by Reuters had estimated that consumer confidence would remain stable in June.

In the European Union as a whole, consumer sentiment remained broadly stable in June falling by 0.1 points to -5.8.
