Nikkei up by break
(03-18 11:04)

Tokyo stocks rose 1.08 percent on Tuesday, boosted by gains on Wall Street and a weaker yen as investors keep an eye on simmering tensions between Russia and Ukraine.
The benchmark Nikkei-225 index climbed 154.79 points to 14,432.46 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.95 percent, or 10.97 points, at 1,165.90. --AFP
