Nikkei soars by break
(02-18 11:15)

Tokyo shares surged 2.25 percent Monday thanks to a weaker yen after G20 talks that averted any criticism of Japan over the recent slide in its currency.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 251.61 points to 11,425.44 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares jumped 2.17 percent, or 20.47 points, at 962.88, AFP reports.
