(04-16 15:48)

Supermarket group Tesco, Britain's biggest retailer, on Wednesday announced a massive jump in annual net profits, but its underlying performance showed a fall.
Tesco said profit after tax stood at 974 million pounds in 2013 compared with 28 million pounds for 2012. But pre-tax profits dropped almost 7.0 percent to 3.05 billion pounds, the company said in a statement. --AFP
