(05-22 14:17)

Tokyo stocks rallied 2.11 percent Thursday as upbeat Chinese data boosted sentiment while a sharp decline in the yen gave a lift to exporter shares.
The benchmark Nikkei index added 295.62 points to 14,337.79 by the close, after finishing in the red on Wednesday, while the Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 1.68 percent, or 19.29 points, to 1,169.34. --AFP
