Nikkei finishes higher
(05-20 14:28)

Tokyo stocks closed up 0.49 percent Tuesday, as the weaker yen lifted exporter shares and after gains on Wall Street, with investors largely unfazed by the announcement of martial law in Thailand.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 68.81 points to finish at 14,075.25, while the Topix index of all first-section shares rose 0.29 percent, or 3.31 points, to 1,153.38. --AFP
