(03-04 14:24)

Stocks in Tokyo ended 0.47 percent higher as a weaker yen boosted exporter shares, despite jitters over the crisis in Ukraine.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index, which lost 1.27 percent on Monday, added 69.25 points to 14,721.48, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was up 0.61 percent, or 7.35 points, at 1,204.11.—AFP
