(08-07 14:15)

Tokyo stocks closed 0.48 percent higher on Thursday as late bargain-hunting dragged the Japanese market out of negative territory and snapped a five-day losing streak.
The Nikkei 225 index rose 72.58 points to finish at 15,232.37, while the Topix index of all first-section shares gained 0.55 percent, or 6.83 points, to 1,258.12. --AFP
