[TOKYO] Tokyo stocks opened down Monday as a stronger yen weighed on exporters, while nagging worries about global economic growth and another drop in oil prices hurt sentiment.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index at the Tokyo Stock Exchange dropped 0.73 per cent, or 115.78 points, to 15,851.39 in opening deals, while the broader Topix index of all first-section shares lost 0.78 per cent, or 10.08 points, to 1,281.74.
