Dec 21 2018 09:29

Tokyo - Tokyo's benchmark Nikkei index extended its losses to mark a new 15-month low on Friday on rekindled fears of a slowing global economy, with a higher yen also weighing on sentiment.

The Nikkei 225 index closed down 1.11% or 226.39 points to finish at 20 166.19, the lowest since September last year, while the broader Topix index gave up 1.91% or 28.97 points at 1 488.19.
