Tokyo dives at close
(03-12 14:28)

Stocks in Tokyo fell 2.59 percent as the yen strengthened and after poor consumer confidence figures raised fresh questions about Japan's economic recovery ahead of next month's sales tax rise. The benchmark Nikkei-225 index fell 393.72 points to finish at 14,830.39, while the Topix index of all first-section shares slipped 2.13 percent, or 26.27 points, to 1,206.94.—AFP
