Nikkei finishes higher
(06-17 14:57)

Tokyo stocks closed 0.29 percent higher Tuesday, as investors took advantage of dip-buying opportunities and as a stronger dollar boosted exporter shares, despite jitters over the growing unrest in Iraq.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 42.68 points to finish at 14,975.97, while the Topix index of all first-section shares was also up 0.29 percent, or 3.52 points, to 1,238.20. --AFP
