Nikkei ends at six-month high
(07-25 14:27)

Tokyo stocks rose 1.13 percent Friday to close at a six-month high after a sharp decline in US jobless claims boosted the dollar against the yen, sending exporter shares higher.
The benchmark Nikkei 225 index added 173.45 points to 15,457.87, its best finish since late January, while the Topix index of all first-section issues rose 0.90 percent, or 11.49 points, to 1,281.35. --AFP
