(01-14 14:15)

Tokyo stocks fell 3.08 percent on Tuesday, hit by a stronger yen and tracking heavy losses on Wall Street after weaker-than-expected US jobs data.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index lost 489.66 points to 15,422.40 while the Topix index of all first-section issues was down 2.26 percent, or 29.40 points, to 1,269.08. --AFP
