[TOKYO] Shares tumbled more than four per cent Tuesday, joining a global sell-off as a stronger yen dented exporters and after oil prices tanked again on fears of a worldwide economic slowdown.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange plunged as much as 4.18 per cent, or 711.29 points, to 16,293.01 in opening deals.
