Positive close for Tokyo
(03-18 15:31)

Stocks in Tokyo closed 0.94 percent higher, 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 133.60 points to finish at 14,411.27, snapping a four-day losing streak. The Topix index of all first-section issues was up by 0.95 percent, or 11.01 points, to 1,165.94.—AFP
