Nikkei finishes lower
(05-15 15:08)

Tokyo stocks fell 0.75 percent Thursday as the stronger yen and a slump in Sony shares overshadowed data showing Japan's economy grew faster than expected in the first three months of the year.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 107.55 points to finish at 14,298.21, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was down 0.41 percent, or 4.86 points, to 1,178.29. --AFP
