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.
