Nikkei down at mid-day
(05-15 11:20)

Tokyo stocks fell 0.88 percent Thursday morning as the stronger yen and a slump in Sony overshadowed data showing Japan's economy grew faster than expected in the first three months of the year.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 126.07 points to 14,279.69 by the break, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was down 0.84 percent, or 9.95 points, at 1,173.20. --AFP
