Nikkei plummets 6pc on broad sell-off
(06-13 14:11)

Tokyo stocks plunged more than six percent on Thursday in a broad sell-off stoked by a stronger yen and worries about an end to central bank stimulus.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index dived 6.35 percent, or 843.94 points, to 12,445.38, throwing the Nikkei into bear-market territory after it peaked last month above 15,600, AFP reports.
The broader Topix index of all first-section shares fell 4.78 percent, or 52.37 points, to 1,044.17.
