TOKYO: Tokyo stocks fell 2.38 percent Friday to their lowest close in six months, leading a fall on Asian markets after Wall Street suffered big losses on concerns about the valuations of high-flying technology companies.

The benchmark Nikkei-225 index sank 340.07 points to finish at 13,960.05, its lowest close since early October, while the Topix index of all first-section shares lost 1.34 percent, or 15.40 points, to 1,134.09. (AFP)
