[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks rose 1.31 per cent on Tuesday, clawing back some of the previous day's losses fuelled by Greece's austerity vote, which analysts said was overdone.

The Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange rose 264.47 points to 20,376.59, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares climbed 1.04 per cent, or 16.87 points, to 1,637.23.
