(08-08 10:43)

Tokyo stocks dropped more than 3.0 percent Friday morning after US President Barack Obama said he had authorised air strikes on Iraq.
The Nikkei 225 index lost as much as 3.14 percent to hit 14,753.84 as Obama's comments sparked a sharp uptick in the yen, which is bad for Japanese shares. --AFP
