(06-04 15:14)

Stocks in Tokyo jumped 2.05 percent as the US dollar gained on the yen in afternoon trading, with the market also lifted by expectations of more policy easing by the Bank of Japan. The benchmark Nikkei 225 index, which had lost 15 percent in the past 10 days, closed 271.94 points higher at 13,533.76. The Topix index of all first-section shares was up 2.60 percent, or 28.52 points, at 1,125.47.--AFP
