[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks extended a global sell-off Wednesday, slipping for a second session with banks tumbling as investors were left underwhelmed by a government stimulus package.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was down 1.88 per cent, or 308.34 points, to finish at 16,083.11, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares slumped 2.17 per cent, or 28.22 points, to 1,271.98.
