(07-10 14:14)

Tokyo stocks lost 0.56 percent Thursday as weak data and a stronger yen weighed on the Japanese market, after the US Federal Reserve signaled its intention to end its long-running stimulus later this year.
The Nikkei 225 index ended down 86.18 points to 15,216.47 while the Topix index of all first-section issues was down 0.91 percent, or 11.57 points, to finish at 1,259.25.
