Nikkei slips at mid-day
(04-14 10:41)

Tokyo stocks slipped 0.11 percent Monday morning, weighed by losses on Wall Street last week and escalating tensions in Ukraine.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index fell 15.62 points to 13,944.43 by the break, after tumbling to a six-month low on Friday, while the Topix index of all first-section shares added 0.47 percent, or 5.32 points, to 1,139.41. --AFP
