European markets down at open
(02-04 16:35)

Europe's main stock markets fell at the open on Tuesday, after heavy losses elsewhere, with London's benchmark FTSE 100 index down 0.41 percent at 6,439.01 points.
In Paris, the CAC 40 slid 0.39 percent to 4,091.70 points and Frankfurt's DAX 30 dropped 0.65 percent to 9,126.46 points compared with Monday's close.
Asian equities slumped on Tuesday -- led by a four percent fall in Tokyo -- following a huge sell-off on Wall Street as poor US manufacturing data compounded stubborn fears about emerging markets. --AFP
