Nikkei down 3pc by break
(05-27 10:52)

Stocks in Tokyo were down more than 3 percent as profit-taking and a stronger yen weighed, after a rollercoaster ride last week that included a 7.3 percent one-day drop.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index lost 3.11 percent, or 455.11 points, to 14,157.34 by the morning break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was 2.53 percent, or 30.17 points, lower to 1,163.91.—AFP
