(02-20 10:46)

Stocks in Tokyo fell 1.68 percent, tracking a fall on Wall Street as the yen gained strength and after Japan logged its worst-ever January trade deficit, denting investor sentiment.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index lost 248.39 points to 14,518.14 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares shed 1.48 percent, or 18.07 points, to 1,200.45.—AFP
