Nikkei falls after Wall St tumbles on Europe debt jitters

TOKYO: The Nikkei average resumed falling on Thursday following a rebound the day before, after rumours about the health of French banks re-ignited concerns over the euro zone's debt crisis and sent U.S. stocks down more than 4 percent.

The benchmark Nikkei average fell 2.2 percent to 8,836.06, while the broader Topix shed 2.1 percent to 760.36. ' Reuters
