European benchmarks rebound, Moscow markets climb 3pc
(03-04 16:38)

European stock markets rebounded in opening deals today, after plunging the previous day on escalating tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
London's benchmark FTSE 100 index of top companies was up by 0.90 percent to 6,769 points, Frankfurt's DAX 30 gained 1.01 percent to 9,453.77 points and in Paris the CAC 40 added 1.13 percent to 4,339.53 compared with Monday's close.
Asian equities steadied after the previous day's global sell-off, but investors remain on edge as they await world leaders' response to Russia's decision to send forces into Ukraine.
Moscow's stock markets meanwhile rebounded by more than 3 percent after plunging on Monday.
World shares had mostly tumbled on Monday after Russia's parliament voted to allow President Vladimir Putin to send troops into Crimea, a mainly Russian-speaking peninsula in the southeast of the ex-Soviet state.—AFP
