Nikkei down by break
(01-31 11:30)

Tokyo stocks slipped 0.61 percent on Thursday morning, tracking losses on Wall Street after US data showed the world's biggest economy unexpectedly shrank in the last quarter of 2012.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index eased 67.71 points to 11,046.24 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was down 0.10 percent, or 0.90 points, at 933.77, AFP reports.
The Nikkei's losses come a day after it soared 2.28 percent to its highest close in nearly three years thanks to a weaker yen, dealers said.
