European stocks diverge in initial trade

London - European stock markets diverged on Monday at the opening bell in a muted reaction to US-led strikes on Syria.

London's FTSE 100 index fell 0.1% to 7 254.83 points, with UK advertising giant WPP diving four percent after chief executive Martin Sorrell resigned over the weekend.

In the eurozone, Frankfurt's DAX 30 rose 0.3% to 12 478.99 points compared with Thursday's closing level.
