(05-16 14:49)

Tokyo stocks lost 1.41 percent Friday owing to a stronger yen and following a sell-off on Wall Street, while Japan Display, the world's biggest maker of smartphone and tablet screens, plunged on a weaker-than-expected profit forecast.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index lost 201.62 points to finish at 14,096.59, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was down 1.63 percent, or 19.22 points, to 1,159.07. --AFP
