(01-15 15:17)

Tokyo stocks rose 0.72 percent Tuesday to a 32-month high, but the benchmark Nikkei index gave up some early gains as the yen rebounded after Japan's economy minister warned over the unit's decline.
The Nikkei gained 77.51 points to 10,879.08, finishing at its highest level since April 30, 2010, while the the broader Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 0.84 percent, or 7.53 points, to 906.22, AFP reports.
