Nikkei plunges 3pc by break
(01-30 11:20)

Tokyo stocks tumbled more than three percent Thursday, leading an Asian rout, sparked by worries over emerging markets as the Federal Reserve further scaled back its stimulus program.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index slumped 3.33 percent, or 511.53 points, to 14,872.38 by the break -- wiping out its 2.70 percent gain Wednesday. The Topix index of all first-section shares fell 3.04 percent, or 38.15 points, to 1,218.03. --AFP
